A file containing a report with supplementary material, produced by M. Forsyth and M. Morris for Nuffield College's Social Reconstruction Survey, on industry and employment in Stoke-on-Trent and the surrounding area. Topics covered by the report include a geographical and social summary of the region; the transportation networks in the area; employment and unemployment, including the influx of female labour into the workforce; and a discussion on the main industrial activity in the area. The report analyses the pre-war situation and the effects of the war, and suggests future prospects and measures for the change back to peacetime industry. The file also contains correspondence on the report's circulation; two illustrative maps; miscellaneous supplementary notes; and two copies of the appendices to the report, on the post-war plans of pottery firms and the views of local representative bodies on the state of industry, including industrial bodies and political parties.
