THE PARTIES

1935 the credit shewed a total of 22,472 pounds, of which £12,698 came from trade unions and 9,129 pounds from individuals.
Thus it can be seen that the historic connection of the trade unions with the Labour Parry still gives them a governing influence. They control a large majority of the votes in the conference; they elect a large proportion of the executive; their membership of the party is about four times greater than its individual membership, although while the former has shewn a fairly steady decline since 1920 the latter has risen equally steadily since 1928. Trade unions enjoy opportunities of influencing the work of the local party through participation in all its affairs, as they are represented on its general committee; but they also have a separate and additional representation on the national conference. Although many constituency parties feel this to be unjust and against the political interests of the parry when they find themselves overruled by the big battalions at the conference, and in 1935 formed a special federation among themselves to claim greater influence,(1) winning an increase of two representatives on the executive and the right to choose them without trade union intervention, trade union influence in the party is still a dominant factor. The reason for this is to be found rather in finance than in personal ability and prestige. The trade unions contribute three-fifths of the party's national finances; and in the constituencies where the working-class is strongest they often represent an organised body within the party that can control its operations.(2) This means that their nominee has often the certainty of adoption as Parliamentary can

1 Replaced by a regional organisation of constituency parties established by the executive in 1938.
2 In some parties, on the other hand, affiliation is only accepted on condition that the union shall not have more than one-third of the total voting strength.
