This chapter discusses the enduring restrictions on the civil liberties of the people of Great Britain before and during the First World War. These restrictions were introduced as temporary measures under the Defence of the Realm Act. However, many of these restrictions either lasted longer than expected, surviving the reason for their original introduction, or were revived in a different form at a later date.
