Implied textFiction: David Copperfield by Charles Dickens
NotesIn the country the Tory Party attacked bureaucracy, planning and controls. In the House
of Commons Mr Churchill offered no alternative policy and prided himself in having no
positive programme. When the winter fuel crisis came up for debate and Dalton asked for the
co-operation of the Opposition in the national emergency, the Tory newspapers leaped
forward with suggestions of a Coalition Government. The proposal was not accepted. [Caption
