A collection of campaigning leaflets from the 1975 and 2016 referendums on the UK’s membership of the European Common Market and European Union respectively. The leaflets were produced by various individuals, political parties and organisations active during both campaigns. Together, they evidence the arguments that were presented to the public by campaigners and provide insight into public perception of the referendums at the time.
