'Left luggage or lost property?', 1947

Cartoon from 'Red Tape', magazine of the Civil Service Clerical Association, from July 1947 showing the Union's hopes for the Reconstruction period that had not been met. Most prominent of these is equal pay for women. In 1946, the Royal Commission on Equal Pay concluded tentatively that women in teaching and certain grades of the civil service might benefit from equal pay. Even these very limited proposals were rejected as inflationary by the Labour Government.
