MR.RAMSAY MACDONALD, during the MT brief existence of the first Labour Government, must have established a record in the number of special committees of inquiry which he appointed. Not the least important was the Committee appointed to inquire into the conditions and prospects of British industry and commerce and to make recommendations in regard thereto, the general scope of the inquiry to include a survey of overseas markets, a survey of industrial relations, and an assessment of British productive capacity and its efficiency. The report of the Committee is being presented in parts; the first part, dealing with overseas markets, was published in June 1925; in February 1926 a volume appeared dealing with industrial relations; and now, after an interval of a year, a third volume has emerged as a first of two contributions to the subject of productive capacity and efficiency.
