The County Times often carried more national information alongside local news. This announcement was particularly pertinent.

“The National Union of Women’s Suffrage Societies wishes it to be known that it has suspended its ordinary political work for the time being and is preparing to use the entire organisation of the Union for the help of those who will be the sufferers from the economic and and industrial dislocation caused by the war.

“The Societies of the National Union throughout the country will be authorised to offer their services to the Local Authorities of every area and to assist in any scheme for the relief of unemployment and distress which may be found necessary.”
