Transcript 70 GREAT BRITAIN AFTER THE WAR. 2. Labour Control. Is there any possibility, under present conditions, of the million working colliers themseLves "taking over the management '' and successfully organising the coal supply ? Could the nation entrust them with so powerful a monopoly? Is there any prospect of the Co-operative Wholesale Society acquiring sufficient pits to supply the three or four million co-operative households? (The ; C.W.S." now purchases and sells to its 1,200 societies over a million tons a year. Could it economically supply those scattered societies from any one coalpit, or even from any two collieries?) 3. Nationalisation. The most recent and authoritative plan for the Nationalisation of the Coal Supply is that worked out by the Research Committee of the Fabian Society. (Chapter III. of " How to Pay for the War.") Nationalisation of coal-getting and transport and municipalisation of retailing is declared to be entirely practicable, bringing with it lower cost in production and distribution, maintenance of a national reserve of coal (for peace and war), husbanding of our coal resources, amelioration of the miner's lot, reduced and fixed prices, and a surplus for the National Exchequer of many millions per annum. It is essential that the student should study this scheme in its details (upon which its validity depends), and set off against the alleged benefits the countervailing disadvantages. How far does the general argument of Herbert Spencer against all State enterprise hold good in this particular case? E.—Coming Possibilities. The Coal Commission in 1905 reported that '' The evidence points to a future extension of central power-stations and the generation and transmission of power upon a large scale. If such stations were established in close proximity to the collieries, there would be nothing to pay on the coal in the way of railway rates, and the question would then be, not the cost of transport of coal, but the cost of transmission of power." Mr. S. Z. Ferranti, speaking as President of the Institute of Electrical Engineers, recently declared that by the "all-electric plan" we could do all the work we now do with not much more than a third as much coal. The Government is now contemplating the erection of about sixteen great centres of power emission, to enable electrical power to be laid on 'or all
