A report produced for Nuffield College's Social Reconstruction Survey regarding the utilisation of industrial developments after the war. Topics covered include the post-war use of munitions factories; the post-war use of smaller factories currently employed in war-time industries; the types of industries that could replace them; and which kinds of businesses would take up such a role. Also included in the discussion are regional variations in industry; the national and local structures that would need to be implemented to deal with post-war industrial reconstruction; and a list of recommendations based on the findings. An appendix covers interviews relating to the subject taken at Marchwiel Royal Ordinance Factory. Also included in the file are correspondence on the copying of the report; a full copy of the report; and a list of files that constitute the Nuffield College Social Reconstruction Survey.
