Lloyd George

Lloyd George

In the deep economic depression of the nineteen-twenties, the Liberal Party under David Lloyd George developed proposals to generate employment through government spending. This handbill was just one of many pamphlets and leaflets dealing with economic issues published by the Liberal Party Publication Department in the election year of 1929. They are preserved in Special Collections as a result of the acquisition in 1977 of the National Liberal Club Library, a collection of national importance and the most important purchase in the history of the Library.
