Scope and Contents

Copy of a letter from WSC (Home Office) to an un-named addressee concerning the naval estimates, which are described as extraordinarily high but mainly attributable to exceptional circumstances. WSC argues that the estimates should not delay the establishment of a general system of National Insurance against unemployment, sickness and invalidity; nor the implementation of provisions for widows and orphans; and should not "disturb with fresh taxation the great social and financial settlement which the Budget has achieved". Unsigned manuscript.
