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 price and supply of British coal; a proposal to build several new hydroelectric power stations in Scotland; and attempts to recruit more workers to help with the harvest, which has suffered due to poor weather. The documents also cover developments in Britain's overseas trade; the evolution of Britain's reserve stocks of food, fuel, and raw materials; and the impact of German V-1 flying bombs on the London Underground. Other documents comment on the committee's planning for the first days after the end of the war; the committee's expectation that the cessation of hostilities with Germany will result in extensive "absence from work"; and the distribution of resources, including paper and petrol, that will be required for the upcoming general election.
