W. HILLS, M. P. PROF. W. J. ASHLEY AND MAURICE WOODS WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY THE RIGHT HON. F. E. SMITH, K. C., M. P. LONDON JOHN MURRAY, ALBEMARLE STREET, W. 1914 PREFACE THE Chairman and Secretary of the Industrial Unrest Committee are responsible for the precise form in which this Report appear. The matter of the Report, however, is the work of the Committee on Industrial Unrest, and has been submitted in the usual course of procedure to the Unionist Social Reform Committee as a whole.

Mr. Stanley Baldwin and Mr. Leslie Scott have acted as Chairmen of Sub-Committees on special subjects. The full Committee consisted of Professor W. J. Ashley, Mr. Waldorf Astor, M. P., Mr. Stanley Baldwin, M. R, Mr. Montague Barlow, M. R, Mr. Charles Bathurst, M. R, Mr. Shirley Benn, M. P., Lord Henry Bentinck, M. R, Mr. J. W. Hills, M. R Chairman, Mr. Harold Hodge, Mr. P. Lloyd Greame, Mr. G. Locker-Lampson, M. R, Mr. L. T. Maunder, Mr. Leslie Scott, K. C., M. R, Sir Mark Sykes, Bart, M. R, Lord Alexander Thynne, M. R, Mr. Christo pher Tumor, and Mr. Maurice Woods as Secretary. The Committee is, in addition, particularly indebted to Professor Ashley, without whose continued assistance, both in discussion and in writing, the Report would never have reached its present form and shape, and we have therefore obtained his permission to add his name as joint-author.

There has been an unpardonable delay in the pub lication of the Report of a Committee which has now been sitting for nearly two years. The only excuse is that we have been watching with close attention the IV PREFACE development of industrial andpolitical affairs during that period, that with increasing knowledge we have modified our views, and that we believe it better to be right in the long run than wrong in the short one. J. W. HILLS, Chairman. MAURICE WOODS, Secretary.

INTRODUCTION BY THE RIGHT HON. F. E. SMITH THE problem of industrial unrest occupies more and more in every succeeding decade the attention of the people of this country. The troubles of 1911, 1912, and 1913, are now seen to have been no isolated outbreak, but a particularly violent explosion of forces, which may at any moment discharge themselves again.

This fact is brought home to us every month by sectional strikes which show a tendency to spread, or by the threats of general strikes to be embarked upon in the summer or autumn. The community as a whole has to make up its mind on the problem, a thing best done in quiet times, and to determine the spirit in which it will approach the difficulty, and decide on the remedies by which the evil may be exorcised or cured.

The case is not a simple one, and no single panacea is sufficient to meet every industrial trouble. The Report of the Unionist Social Reform Committee can be commended precisely on this ground. It recognizes the variety of conditions and the multiplicity of details and endeavours to fit its scheme to meet the cases instead of forcing the cases into a bed of Procrustes in order to meet a pre-ordained theory. In this course of procedure it is following the precedents oi previous reports on Poor Law, Education, and Housing.

The duty of Conservatism has been and always is to produce practical solutions which can be carried into effect to-morrow, and not ideal conceptions which have no relation topolitical or industrial reality. The report therefore is eminently practical, as the names of its authors and backers would alone prove. Mr. Hills, vi INTRODUCTION Professor Ashley, Mr. Astor, Mr, Stanley Baldwin, Mr.

Leslie Scott, and their associates do not speak without their book, and are not authorities who can be dis regarded in the world of industrial economy...
