Description

A file of memoranda and statistical information produced for the Lord President's Committee on domestic affairs during the Second World War. The documents discuss the committee's attempts to improve the health of the British public by recruiting more medical staff, altering the methods of food preparation in British factories, and developing the British public transport network to encourage the public to take more holidays. Documents in the file include a series of statistical reports providing information on Britain's food reserves; and a collection of new laws outlining proposed post-war reforms to the British education system. Other documents comment on the rationing of key goods, including rubber, paper, and timber; attempts to increase the British coal-mining industry's workforce; and the committee's proposals to reform the British welfare system, including a range of proposed changes to the payment of pensions to ex-servicemen and their families.
