This case study is the result of a partnership between the Parliamentary Archives, Parliamentary Outreach and Birmingham Archives and Heritage. It is part of the People and Parliament: Connecting with Communities project which was launched in July 2009.
The Communities project explores the impact of Parliament on local communities and investigates how people have influenced Parliament. We do this by researching material held in the Parliamentary Archives at Westminster, as well as records held locally by regional archives.
To find out more about the project, and to see some of the other case studies which have been created, please visit the Communities page.
