“The coal problem is one of the most pressing on the home front: it has endangered our safety in war; in peace, it will endanger our prosperity and standard of living.  Recent Government reports have shown that the industry as at present organised cannot solve the problem, and far-reaching changes are necessary.  In this book Harold Wilson, a young Labour candidate, formerly Director of Economics and Statistics at the Ministry of Fuel and Power, Secretary for the Greene Miners’ Wages Board and reputed author of the well-known Statistical Digest, describes and analyses the coal problem, examining the “Foot” Scheme, and puts forward a radical scheme for its solution, prepared in consultation with leading members of the National Union of Mineworkers and of the Labour Party.”
