  Conservative Research Department - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Conservative Research Department ('CRD') is an integral part of the central organisation of the Conservative Party of the United Kingdom.
CRD was therefore the instrument through which the course of Conservative policy was determined during what is known as the 'post-war consensus' until it broke down in the 1970s.
During the 2005 election CRD was as usual once again the leader's policy secretariat, assisting Michael Howard's close advisers with the formulation of the Conservative position on all key subjects and the development of the strategy for the campaign.

Established by Neville Chamberlain in 1929, the CRD came to prominence under the Chairmanship of Rab Butler through its central role in the revival of Conservatism after Labour's landslide in 1945.
Today, the CRD continues to perform the vital functions of devising policies for the next Conservative manifesto, while providing policy advice, research and briefings for the party's front-bench spokesmen.
The CRD currently consists of some 25 policy advisers providing expertise in their respective policy areas, while the running of the Department is in the hands of its Chairman, George Bridges, its Director, Dr Greg Clark and its two Deputy Directors, Dominic Schofield and John Glen.
