This chapter describes a variety of factors in the British labour movement which worked against the emergence of a specific war reformism comparable to that in France in the first eighteen months of the war. It also discusses the Labour and the New Social Order, the Labour Party's official post-war ‘reconstruction’ programme. This programme is a summation of the process by which the increasingly critical participation of labour leaders in the national effort found expression in a vision of reforms, arising from the war itself, but projected in an idealized programmatic form to the post-war world.
