Excerpt from British Labour, Replacement and Conciliation, 1914-21, Vol. 1: Being the Result of Conferences and Investigations by Committees of Section F of the British Association

It is hoped that this book may prove to be of assistance in the solution of some of the economic problems which are pressing upon the attention of this country.

The discussions arranged by the Economics Section of the British Association at Manchester, in the summer of 1915, aroused considerable interest, and there was a widespread demand that they should be available to a more extensive public than could attend the meetings. Under the circumstances, immediate publication was deemed to be essential. Thus, although the Reports were interim, and the discussion on Industrial Harmony not only as incomplete as such discussions must necessarily be, but also somewhat inconclusive, being preliminary, and the views expressed being by no means identical, it was decided to publish with as little delay as possible. There resulted four volumes of Reports, which quickly went out of print. The present volume sums up and co-ordinates the section relating to labour.

Professor W. R. Scott, of Glasgow University, wrote the preface to the first volume, from which the following is reprinted -

"Economic questions assumed increasing importance during the course of the great struggle, and in all probability their importance will continue to increase for some years yet. The meeting of the Economics and Statistics section of the British Association afforded an opportunity of collecting and discussing the opinions of a large number of persons whose views were of interest or carried weight. Accordingly, the Organizing Committee decided to concentrate discussion upon those problems which were of immediate and pressing importance. It appeared that there were three groups of these, namely, the prevalence of industrial unrest, the manner in which the labour absorbed by the war was replaced, and the state of credit, currency, and finance as affected by the war. The Committee recognized that these problems could not be dealt with adequately by the method usually adopted by the section by means of separate papers. After a considerable amount of discussion it was decided that the best way of treating the problem of the minimizing of industrial friction was, in the first instance, by assigning one day for a full discussion of this subject.
