Transcript GREAT BRITAIN AFTER THE WAR. 17 ways in which each can be made practicable, applied to his own trade or locality, paid for, etc., etc.). Should it not— (a) Complete the " Peace Book "—-for that purpose utilising all the best brains in the country. The Ministry of Reconstruction does not seem to be tackling this job. Each town and each village needs its own " Peace Book." (b) Charge the Ministry of Labour definitely with the responsibility for all the Labour problems which will arise after the war—taking over the administration of the Factory and Mines Acts from the Home Office, and of the Unemployed Workmen Act from the Local Government Board. (c) At once extend its Unemployment Insurance scheme to all trades, extending the duration of the benefit. (d) Make disbandment of soldiers and sailors gradual, allowing men to leave when they insist on it, but compelling th^m to return to civil life only in so far as they can be absorbed. (Why not allow any man to re-enlist in the Army for an additional year if he likes?) (e) Give the disbanded munition and other war-workers the same terms of notice, gratuity, free railway ticket, etc., as rhe disbanded soldiers. (f) Prepare at once schemes of employment by the public authorities, both central and local, to be started as scon :•■= the Labour Exchanges find themselves unable to place ' the applicants, in order thus actually to prevent unemployment— as distinct from letting unemployment occur and then relieving the unemployed (e.g., the building of workmen's dwellings, schools, etc., the making and improving of roads, the planting of trees, the reclamation of waste lands, etc.). (g) Take all children under 15 off the labour market (in order to make room for adults), by raising the school-leaving age. (h) Pension adequately all widows with young children so that they are not (as too often at present) driven to industrial work in order to live. (j) Provide for any workers for whom the Labour Exchange fails to discover any means of livelihood full maintenance on condition of accepting training or practical work of educational character and value. (k) Finally, should not the Government use every means in its power to maintain the standard of life? If it cannot or will not control prices, it must control wages. Suggestions for carrying out this policy will be found in subsequent pages.
