Conservative Party candidates 1832 to 1979

The number of Conservative Party candidates nearly doubled between the 1832 and 1979 elections. This reflects the far greater number of constituencies that were created between those years, the result of the growth in the electorate that came about as a result of the 1832, 1867, 1884 and 1918 reform acts.
