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 state of Britain's reserve stocks of food, fuel, and raw materials; recent developments in British agriculture; and British agricultural trade unions' opposition to the government's proposal to extend double summer time, as it forces agricultural labourers to work unrealistic hours. The documents also cover the enlargement of an airfield at Filton, near Bristol, to accommodate the new Bristol Brabazon airliner; and the committee's proposal of a series of rent controls to ensure that Britain's post-war housing is kept at a reasonable price. Other documents comment on the committee's planning for the days after the cessation of hostilities with Germany, including the number of bank holidays that should be awarded to the British public, and the impact of a ceasefire on Britain's industrial productivity.
