In spite of the worst fog of the year over 70 members of the Whetstone Ward Branch of the Conservative Association turned out to meet Mrs. Margaret Thatcher (Prospective Conservative Parliamentary Candidate for Finchley and Friern Barnet) last week.

The occasion resulted from personal invitations to members from the President and Officers, and the meeting was held at the Conservative Hall, 267 Ballards Lane, N12, on 27th October. After an introduction by the President Mr. W. H. Stevenson, Mrs. Thatcher showed members the comprehensive range of Conservative leaflets and publications that were available to cover past, present and future achievements of the Party.

After emphasising that the choice at the next General Election was only between a Conservative or a Socialist Government, Mrs. Thatcher made a powerful appeal to her audience for financial and active support to the Ward organisation so that it could reach its peak in time for the Election.

When question time was over Mrs. Thatcher accompanied by her husband chatted with many of the members, and thanked them for pledges of support.
