Annual Reports of the Labour Party, 1900-1960 MFM 774
Reports, beginning with the inaugural conference, include lists of officers and Executive Committee, reports of Executive Committee, party's annual balance sheet, conference proceedings, and appendix. In 1907 a Parliamentary Report was added and since 1930 this included a special section on the Labour Group in the House of Lords. An index (not always reliable) was added in 1906. These reports portray the changing moods of the Labour Party and reveal the main antagonists and differing opinions for which they stand. Appendices contain the constitution, standing orders, manifestoes, lists, and reports of negotiation.
