Biographical / Historical
The Conservative News Service was introduced in 1989 by Michael Gunton, Deputy Head of News at Conservative Central Office. Its aim was to inform Party workers of the 'Party line' via a simple, monthly, A5 format with key points to make on particular issues such as Housing, Pensioners, and the NHS listed in bull-point style. It was intended that constituency agents would photocopy and redistribute the papers for circulation amongst Party workers [Only one issue from 1989 is so far held in the CPA].
