Description

A file of memoranda, graphs, and statistical information concerning the workings of the Lord President's Committee on domestic affairs during the Second World War. The documents discuss the potential use of viruses to try and exterminate Britain's rat population; and the committee's attempts to recruit more doctors to serve both within the British Armed Forces, and amongst the civil population. The documents also cover a gradual improvement in Britain's food stocks, with fewer shipments from abroad being lost to enemy attacks; the possibility of increasing the food rations given to British livestock; and the prices of various key foodstuffs within the British market, including pork, potatoes, and dairy products. Other documents comment on the payment of pensions to British ex-servicemen and their families; the committee's efforts to recruit more women to fill key positions in British industry and agriculture; and initial planning for the post-war reconstruction of Britain's cities.
