Its author has brought to it a vast knowledge of his subject, a reformer’s zeal, a lively and creative mind and, last but not least, a genius for lucid exposition. What he has attempted is to unify all the existing schemes of social insurance into one single scheme and to provide a system which will remove from the mind of the wage-earner the fear of penury during periods of ill-health, involuntary unemployment and old age. It is a bold and imaginative conception and, in a sense it is a logical development of the series of insurance measures which have been placed upon the Statute Book during the past thirty years. For many of these, Conservative Governments, or Governments in which Conservatives predominated, have been proud to be responsible..." 4 December 1942.
