The National Council of Labour Colleges was set up for "the education of the workers from the working class point of view, through the medium of Colleges, classes and public lectures; the co-ordination and extension of this independent working-class educational work; the issuing of leaflets, syllabuses, etc, for the assistance of class tutors and students". Originally the colleges were run by the Plebs Movement but they came to be run by the Unions and affiliated to the Labour Party. In addition, the London College was run by national bodies, whilst the provincial classes were controlled by union branches. This collection appears to be a second set of minutes, kept by J P M Millar, the General Secretary.
