SUBMITIKD
TO
THE
AnXUAL
MeETING
ONJUNE
13tH,
IOlM).
THE
year
under
review
has
been
marked
by
acontinued
development
and
consolidation
of
the
Labour
movement
and
the
Labour
Party.
The
figures
of
the
recent
bye-elections
shoW
a
large
turnover
of
votes
to
Labour,
and
there
are
clear
indica-
tions
that
the
country
is
turning
to
that
Party
as
the
real
opposi-
tionto
the
reactionary
policy
of
the
government.
Itis
worthy
of
note
thatthe
Fabian
Society,
which
has
taken
its
part
in
the
education
and
formation
of
public
opinion
inpolitical
affairs,
has
now
nearly
a
hundred
of
its
members
adopted
as
candidates
for
Parliament
at
the
approaching
election.
In
our
own
affairs
the
yearhas
been
one
of
some
trouble
and
difficulty
owing
to
the
need
for
obtaining
new
j^remises
and
re-
moving.
The
premises
at
25,
Tothill
Street,
which
we
had
occupied
for
fourteen
years,
were
sold
for
rebuilding,
and
are
now
demolished,
and
we
received
notice
to
quit
in
March.
It
was
im-
possible
to
find
any
suitable
premises
to
let
in
the
vicinity,
and
we
were
accordingly
faced
with
the
alternativeof
leaving
West-
minster
orpurchasing
a
suitable
house
in
the
neighbourhood.
Fortunately
such
a
house
was
available
and
for
saleat
a
reason-
able
price,
and
eventually
it
was
decided
to
buy
the
freehold
of
our
present
premises,
11,
Dartmouth
Street.
A
member
ofthe
Society
kindly
advanced
the
sum
of
£2,500
on
a
mortgage,
and
the
Atkinson
Fund
Trustees
advanced
a
further
£1,000
free
of
interest
but
to
be
repaid
by
annual
instalments.
This
sufficed
to
purchase
the
freehold
and
to
put
the
premises
in
thorough
repair,
including
some
necessarv
reconstruction.
We
removed
on
Sep-
tember
24-th,
and
the
new
house
is
satisfactory
and
meets
our
needs
in
every
way,
except
that
it
does
not
provide
a
hall
for
meetings.
In
spite
of
the
interruption
thus
caused,
we
have
to
report
that
the
work
of
the
Society
has
been
carried
on
as
vigorously
as
ever.
We
issued
tliree
new
tracts
during
the
year
about
the
average
of
recent
vears.
The
bookshop
business
and
the
sale
of
-publications,
which
declined
seriously
in
1926,
is
still
unsatisfac-
tory,
and
shows
a
falling-off
from
last
year
probably
due
in
part
to
thedislocation
of
business
during
removal.
