Engaging with participation
in The Labour Governments 1964–70 volume 1

This chapter assesses the Labour Party's response to calls for more direct political participation. First, it examines Labour's historical attitude to the subject. It then outlines how ministers responded to its emergence as a live issue during the late 1960s, and in particular highlights Judith Hart's thinking, as she was the minister briefly in charge of the matter. The chapter then looks at those areas where increasing participation was at least discussed, such as planning, devolution, and community development. The chapter finally turns to the matter of participation within the Labour Party itself.
