Biographical / Historical

One Nation Forum was a Conservative Party group centred around winning the votes and support of ethnic minorities. It was set up by the Party Chairman in Aug 1987 following the disbandment of the Anglo-Asian Conservative Society and Anglo-West Indian Conservative Society. The group's aims, objectives, and four sub-committees were approved by the National Union Executive Committee.

In a message from the Chairman in the first edition of the Forum's newsletter, John Cope MP states: 'The One Nation Forum has an important job to do in strengthening the bridges between the Conservative Party and all members of the ethnic minority communities in Britain. We do not want to set up a separate part of our Party for minority groups, but to ensure that everyone who is British realises that the Conservative Party itself welcomes their support and membership. Many of our constituency officers and members are now from ethnic minorities. Baroness Flather sits on the Conservative benches in the House of Lords. Conservative Councillors and parliamentary candidates come from Asian, West Indian, Chinese and other backgrounds. The Forum's job is to build on this.'
