Party Strategy Committee meetings, May-July 1974

CCO 20/68/2

[This committee was chaired by Michael Wolff, the newly-created Director General of Conservative Central Office appointed by Heath. It met for the first time in May 1974 and was intended to be the first of a regular series of meetings designed to discuss strategy rather than tactics, but was short-lived. It consisted of Sir Michael Fraser, Mrs Charles Morrison, Anthony Grant MP, David Knox MP, Sir Richard Webster, Don Harker, James Douglas, Chris Patten, and William Waldergrave. Few papers survive of this Group, and as Wolff was dismissed by Thatcher upon assuming the Party leadership in 1975 and the post of Director General abolished, it is assumed that it was short-lived.]

Subjects include:-

  1. The threat from the Liberals, May 1974
  2. Post-Feb 1974 general election surveys and voting behaviour, June 1974
  3. Community relations at constituency level, July 1974
