VOTERS PROMISED FIVE-YEAR PLAN
industry, Employment, Agriculture, Housing The declared policy of the British Labour party is a five-year plan to ensure the future of British industry, full employment, the control \of financial institutions, agriculture and housing. In a broadcast speech on June 5, Mr. Attlee said that some war-time restriction would be removed by the Labour party as soon as possible, but others were still vitally needed to protect the people from profiteers and monopolists. Raw materials would be used to the best advantage, use of the land would have to be controlled, and they would have to have power to acquire what tne nation or a local council needed. Labour's plan, said Mr. Attlee, was to transfer the whole business of providing fuel, power and light into a public service. A similar policy would be pursued in iron and steel. It would be their policy .to stimulate industry, and especially to help the export trade, but help would be given only on condition that industry and trade were efficient.
