    Okay, so my friend needs help with this question, please help!
    =]

    1945 May.
    The prime minister made much play last night with the rights of the individual and the dangers of people being ordered about by officials. I entirely agree that people should have the greatest freedom compatible with the freedom of others. There was a time when employers were free to employ sweated women workers on finishing trousers at a penny halfpenny a pair. There was a time when people were free to neglect sanitation so that thousands died of preventable diseases. For years every attempt to remedy these crying evils was locked by the same plea for freedom for the individual. It was in fact freedom for the rich and slavery for the poor. Make no mistake; it has only been through the power of the state, given to it by parliament that the general public has been against the greed of ruthless profit- makers and property owners.

    Q. How does Atlee defend the idea of greater state intervention?

    Any help please? :confused:
