On the Plateau, 1951–62

  • Henry Pelling


After the victory of the Conservatives in the 1951 election, the General Council of the T.U.C, at once made it clear that it was not going to abandon its close association with the processes of government and administration just because the Labour Party was now in opposition. A statement was issued which declared:

Since the Conservative administrations of pre-war days the range of consultation between Ministers and both sides of industry has considerably increased and the machinery of joint consultation has enormously improved. We expect of this Government that they will maintain to the full this practice of consultation. On our part we shall continue to examine every question solely in the light of its industrial and economic implications.
