Labour had no developed plan of its own for social policy, having participated in devising the measures put forward by the coalition government and adopted in addition the proposals in the Beveridge report, but with strong private reservations on the part of several senior figures. The manifesto for the 1945 Election (Let Us Face the Future) was cautious in tone and contained little evidence of a comprehensive strategy for welfare. As a result, as Jose Harris rather brutally puts it, ‘the Welfare State came into being with no clearly defined conception of welfare and no coherent theory of the State’ (in Smith 1986:256).
