It’s the 70th anniversary of the Beveridge report this week and there is a lot going on. Today Radio 4 has a whole series of programmes. There is a wealth of material about the report and the ideas which underpin it, both in the collections of the Working Class Movement Library and the People’s History Museum. I thought I would have a look at this stuff and report back.
Beveridge was elected MP for Berwick-Upon-Tweed in 1944. The above leaflet was produced for his campaign and is in the collection of the People’s History Museum.
