The core of this full length history is the momentous period from the General Strike of 1926 to the nationalization of the mines in January 1947 ... To the treatment of the post Second World War period the authors have added a final chapter assessing the achievements and the problems of the nationalized industry, as well as the role of the miners in the upsurge of industrial militancy that characterized the sixties and seventies."

History on our side - Wales and the 1984-85 miners' strike by Hywel Francis( Book )

6 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Forewords by Mike Jackson and Sian James MP The film Pride has reignited interest in the struggles of the miners in the South Wales valleys in the strike of 1984-5. A new chapter in this re-issued book shows why the Welsh miners were in a unique position to forge an alliance with Lesbian and Gays Support the Miners Group. Hywel Francis, MP for Aberavon, as a historian and active participant in the strike, had a unique insight into the way in which the struggles for jobs and communities broadened out to become a powerful national movement in Wales, involving trade unions, political parties, churches, the Welsh Language Society, and community, peace and women's support groups, as well as their lesbian and gay supporters. This very personal history, which explains why the South Wales valleys were the strongest and most loyal of all the British coalfields, is based on the author's personal diaries, and his articles and essays in a number of Welsh and British journals. It tells the story of the individual and collective courage and pain of Welsh miners, their families and their communities - and is an important contribution to our understanding of a defining moment in modern Welsh history

The Committee's report examines the provisions of the Mental Health Bill (HLB 1, session 2006-07; ISBN 9780108435461) in relation to nine main human rights compatibility issues, and considers two significant omissions from the Bill which could have enhanced the protection and promotion of human rights. Findings include there appears to be no Convention obstacle to changing the test for treatment without consent (from one where the decision-maker is required to have regard to the likelihood that the treatment will alleviate or prevent deterioration in the patient's condition to a new test that it is appropriate for the treatment to be given) as a condition of compulsory detention, although the Committee is mindful that the treatment available should be likely to be of therapeutic benefit to the patient. Concerns are raised that, while initial detention would still be based on objective medical expertise, renewal of detention would be authorised by a 'responsible clinician', who need not be a doctor, and that the decision would lack scrutiny by any higher authority other than the Mental Health Review Tribunal. Forcible feeding should be subject to the same safeguards as apply to other invasive forms of treatment. In relation to the treatment of mentally incapacitated patients, since the Bill's proposals to amend the Mental Capacity Act are detailed and complex, the Committee questions whether they will be readily understood by proprietors of residential care homes. Two key omissions from the Bill are also highlighted, relating to: i) provision for effective supervision and review of decisions to give treatment without consent for mental disorder to patients deprived of their liberty under mental capacity legislation, where the treatment involves psychotropic medication or other significant interferences with physical integrity; and ii) provision for sufficient safeguards to ensure that seclusion is used only when strictly necessary and that individuals subject to it should have access to review at intervals so that it is brought to an end when no longer necessary

The learning divide : a report of the findings of a UK-wide survey on adult participation in education and learning carried out for NIACE, the national association for adult learning by Naomi Sargant( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Adult participation in education and learning in the United Kingdom was examined through a Gallup survey of a stratified (by region and town size) national sample of 4,673 adults aged 17 years and over from England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland. Interviewers were given quotas for sex by respondents' age, class, and employment status. Interviewing took place January 24 to February 6, 1996. In Northern Ireland, a booster sample of 528 adults was interviewed to enable separate results for the first such surveys in the province. Of those regions surveyed, 23% of adults were currently enrolled in learning and an additional 17% had been enrolled in learning in the past 3 years. More men (25%) than women (21%) were currently learning. Key findings included the following: social class is a key predictor of participation; more than half of all upper and middle class respondents were current or recent learners versus only one-third of respondents from the skilled working class and one-fourth of those from the unskilled working class; employment status affects learning opportunities--unemployed and retired people have half the levels of participation of employed persons; length of initial education is the best single predictor of participation; and those with more initial education are more likely to participate in additional education. Information regarding respondents' future learning intentions, subjects of learning, place and length of study, qualifications earned, finance, attitudes toward learning, and reasons for nonparticipation were also collected. (Sixty-four tables/figures are included. The book contains 55 references. Appended are the following: technical information; notes on tables, guide to socioeconomic class; regions surveyed; analysis of weighted and unweighted samples; and the questionnaire.) (mn)

This report scrutinises the extent to which the Government's amendments to the Bill reflect the Committee's recommendations made in their first report (HLP 59/HCP 372 session 2012/13 (ISBN 9780108476242)). To the extent that the Committee is not satisfied that they do, they recommend further amendments to the Bill for consideration at Report stage. They revisit two recommendation made which have not yet been reflected in the Bill: a requirement of judicial balancing within the closed material procedure (CMP) and a 'gisting' obligation. They recommend that the Bill be amended to ensure that a full judicial balancing of interests always takes place within the CMP, weighing the public interest in the fair and open administration of justice against the likely degree of harm to the interests of national security when deciding which material should be heard in closed session and which in open session. The Committee also agrees with the Special Advocates that if there is to be a power to hold a CMP in civil proceedings, there should be an express statutory requirement in all cases to provide the excluded party with a gist of the closed material that is sufficient to enable him to give effective instructions to his Special Advocate. They therefore recommend that the Bill be amended to impose such gisting obligations
