Ninety years ago the British Co-operative Movement took an historic decision to seek direct representation in Parliament and on local authorities. In October 1917 they adopted a political programme and set up a Central Co-operative Parliamentary Representation Committee which in 1919 was renamed The Co-operative Party.

This booklet tells the fascinating story of the journey towards political representation during the First World War by 14 Co-operative Societies in Greater Nottingham, a journey marked by frustration, anger, hope, determination and a belief that in Co-operation they could build a better society in the aftermath of war.

The booklet contains several black and white photographs
