World War One and the drink question. State control of the drink trade

Donnachie, Ian (1982). World War One and the drink question. State control of the drink trade. Scottish Labour History, 17 pp. 19–26.

Abstract

Examines government intervention and control of alcohol consumption - and ultimately production - in key strategic centres of munitions production, naval bases etc with assessment of the impact and effectiveness of policies in localities such as Enfield, Carlisle, Invergordon, Orkney, etc. While these were regarded as emergency measures during 1914-18, state control, on essentially Scandinavian lines, continued in several areas until the 1970s.
