Abstract

In April, 1949, the National Executive of the Labor Party published the draft of its program for the next election, due sometime in the coming twelve months. This document, Labor Believes in Britain, was presented to the annual Labor Party Congress held in Blackpool early in June; but, at the request of Herbert Morrison, the draft, along with certain proposed amendments, was referred back to the Executive without a vote. Since it is reasonable to assume that at least the substance of this draft will appear in the party's electoral manifesto, it is worth examining in some detail as a guide to Labor's strategy for creating "a new age of peace and plenty, opportunity and justice."
