"[The following memorandum by Rt. Hon. Sidney Webb (later Lord Passfield, O.M.) is a statement about the Labour Government of 1924 in which he held ofice as President of the Board of Trade. This memorandum has not hitherto been published and the Editors are indebted to The Passfield Trustees for permission to publish it in The Political Quarterly. An appendix to the memorandum contains details about the state of the parties in the House of Commons before and after the General Election of 1923, with a brief outline of the circumstances in which Ramsay MacDonald took ofice as Prime Minister of the first Labour Government. We also give biographical notes of the members of that government and of a few other persons referred to by Sidney Webb. The appendix has been prepared editorially and is not part of the memorandum. The memorandum is published as written except for the omission of one or two sentences which might cause pain to persons now living. In view of its exceptional interest we have invited Mr. Henry Pelling and Mr. H. R. G. Greaves to comment on the Webb mernorandum. - Editors, P.Q.]" - p.6.
