Conservative Party by-election leaflet, April 1967

Conservative Party by-election leaflet, April 1967This election leaflet dates from a by-election in April 1967.  What is interesting is that the leaflet is red and the candidate is a Conservative.

Both main political parties still allowed a large degree of local/regional freedom when it came to candidates producing their own election literature.

In this case the seat was won by the Conservative Party candidate.  They also held the seat a few years later in the 1970 general election.
