Plus Equal Votes
plus equal votes: women over the age of 30 received the UK vote in 1918 and universal suffrage was introduced in 1928. Ian Dury's mum was born in 1910, so would have been one of the first women to benefit from the 1928 introduction and would have been able to vote in the 1931 general election.
