Whitaker for 1971 complete edition, cloth bound 35s.
THE new Whitaker is as excellent and indispensable as ever.
Complete details of Mr. Heath's first Ministry are given, and it has been possible to include the autumn reorganisation of Ministries under "Topics of the Day" where space was reserved for probable changes.
With the introduction of Decimal Currency in 1971 comes a fresh increase in postal charges. The new decimal rates for inland letter and parcel post have been tabulated along with fsd equivalents and the new fees for Post Office minor services are also summarised.
In this 1971 edition Whitaker continues to present a wealth of information about public affairs, government, industry. finance, commerce, social usage and the arts, while its index, running to some 70 Pages, is probably the hardestworked, most exhaustive and most efficient index in daily use.
The regular contents are, as usual supplemented by topical items, such as the story of the Apollo 12 and 13 space missions.
Highlights of the year in sport include a portrait of the Queen at the final day of the Commonwealth Games, of which full results have been listed; golfers Tony Jacklin and Michael Bonallack, while Lester Piggott, winning jockey of 1970, is shown with Nijinsky, the first horse for 35 years to win racing's Triple Crown.
