The State, Internal Migration, and the Growth of New Industrial Communities in Interwar Britain
AbstractDuring inter-war years (particularly the 1930s) Britain witnessed considerable long-distance internal migration from the traditional heartlands of the North, Scotland, and Wales, to new or expanding industrial communities in the South East and Midlands. This paper examines the impact of internal migration on the development of rapidly growing industrial communities and the role of government in promoting such migration.
