The political landscape after the war

  • ILP and Labour grow

  • Politicisation of working class due to demands to expand the franchise, socialist teaching by radicals PLUS strict government controls of DORA which prevents strike action and RESULTS in a disenchanted workforce who work long hours without adequate pay rises. Majority turn to the LABOUR party who want CHANGE. While others turn to the ‘law & order’ of the Conservatives to RESTORE the country to pre-war ideals.

  • Liberals do not recover from the split, popularity declines – uncertainty.

  • Support for Scottish Home Rule wanes as discarded in 1914. Full Irish home rule is granted in 1922 – in a spirit of unity and togetherness, Scottish Home Rule is dropped on outbreak of war and becomes a quiet minority post-war.

  • 1928 the Scottish National Party was formed and the issue is re-ignited

  • 1924 Conservatives won 38 Scottish seats (compared to Labour’s 26)

  • 1924 Labour minority government – although short lived (led by Scot Ramsay McDonald)

  • 1920s overall saw the ILP peak in popularity, 1/3 of all British members were in fact Scottish (300/1000 branches located in Scotland)

  • Govt. overreacts and sends 12,000 soldiers and 6 tanks sent to settle disturbances between police and protestors.

Scotland s economy is historically based on
Scotland’s economy is historically based on:

  • HEAVY industry = steel, coal, shipbuilding, railways, rubber, engineering locomotives

  • OTHER: Fishing industry – herring which is exported to European markets, textiles mainly centralised in Dundee, wool industry, agriculture

    HOWEVER, WWI impact results in dramatic change:

Clydeside boom
Clydeside BOOM!

  • Ship ORDERS of £16million

  • DIVERSIFICATION of industry as ship yards also turn to making aircraft components, tanks and artillery.(Beardmore, Brown, Fairfields)

  • 24,000 full time EMPLOYMENT

  • 90% of armour plating comes from Glasgow

  • Increased PROFITS – 481 warships built on the Clyde during the 4 years of war

Fishing agriculture

  • Navy took over inshore areas of Firth of Forth

  • Lost Russian and German markets – demand declined

  • Employment decreased due to voluntarism and conscription

  • North sea closed to fishing

  • Fish price rose and eventually rationed

  • Sheep farming boom – government bought wool stocks

Women economy

  • Women temporarily stepped into the jobs of men

  • Munitions eg Gretna employed 9000 women

  • On average, paid 45% less than men in the Jute industry (which is why these industries profited so much!)

  • Else Inglis – field hospitals

  • Worked in tram and rail industries, engineering through dilution – areas where women would normally never be seen

  • Representation of the People Act - vote

  • Politicised by war through work and rent strikes

  • First rent strike, May 1915, 25,000 joined by the end of the year.

The economic landscape after the war

  • Temporary boost to shipbuilding to repair and build ships to replace those damaged by merchant navy

  • Foreign competition ruined textiles industry along with Trade Union disputes and lack of investment

  • Demand for coal and steel declined

  • Herring industry never recovered to pre-war levels

  • Coal – falling orders

  • Locomotives were amalgamated and production moved south

  • Decline in agriculture due to loss of workers and emigration – Land raids caused problems
