First Tuesday: Mike Fraser will talk about Sir William Beveridge – the Man, the Report and the Berwick Division

6 April 2021 @ 19:00 - 20:30

This meeting replaces Hannah Kent’s planned talk: “One Aim, One God, One Destiny”? which has been cancelled.


Sir William Beveridge was the hugely popular architect of the welfare state who became Liberal MP for Berwick in 1944 only to be swept away in the Labour landslide of 1945. Mike will discuss his early life, his report, the reasons for his defeat at Berwick and his subsequent career.
