Dulwich by-election, 1932
The Conservative and National candidate was Bracewell Smith, Mayor of Holborn and a member of London County Council. The Labour candidate was Helen Bentwich, a trade unionist. She was a niece of the Home Secretary, Sir Herbert Samuel, and had recently returned from Palestine where her husband, Norman Bentwich, had been Attorney-General. The Liberal candidate was Dr C. R. Cooke-Taylor, a medical practitioner who was running in the constituency for the seventh time.
The former Conservative member had had a large majority and the seat was considered a safe seat for the party. The major issues were the stringent financial policies of the National Government, and for the Liberal candidate, opposition to protectionism.
The result was much as expected, with turnout around two-thirds of what it had been in the previous year's general election. The Conservative candidate's majority was slashed in half, but the Liberal candidate slightly increased his vote, pushing Labour into third place.
