Betrayal of the welfare state 70 years on
The list of legislation brought forward by Atlee's government shows that along with opportunities for access to education came a house building programme, free health services and, above all, a comprehensive programme of benefits to deal with unemployment, old age and much more besides. It was a 'brave new world' indeed.

Main legislative measures of the post-war Labour government :

·         1945 Family Allowances Act

·         1946 National Insurance Act

·         1946 National Insurance (Industrial Injuries) Act

·         1946 National Health Service Act (implemented July 1948)

·         1947 Town and Country Planning Act

·         1947 New Towns Act

·         1948 National Assistance Act

·         1948 Children Act

·         1949 Housing Act
