ABSTRACT
This article examines the implications of the problem of raw materials supplies for European industry, to which the resignations from the British Government in 1951 so spectacularly drew attention. It is beyond doubt of profound significance for Anglo-American collaboration and for the security of the Western World. It is part of an international problem too complex to admit of comprehensive survey in any single article, even if the relevant statistical data were available; and this contribution does not presume to make the attempt. The writer's aim is the more modest one of trying, first, to set the causes and implications of the recent furor in perspective against the wider background, and then to indicate some longer-range possibilities and needs, in the hope of thereby narrowing the area of misunderstanding on (and between) both sides of the Atlantic. One difficulty at the outset, however, is that in the domestic dispute in Britain the fundamental issue of raw material supplies was heavily overlaid by purely political considerations and tactics; these must be disentangled before a clear view of the real issue can be obtained.
