SUBSIDISED IDLENESS Steady Progress Expected (PUBLISHED IN "THE TIMES.") LONDON, August 2. [Newspaper Article] — News — 3 August 1923
SUBSIDISE IDLENESS Steady Progresss Expected (PUBLISHED IN "THE TIMES.") LONDON', August 2. Attention is called to the effect of subsidised idleness among the workers in the Ruhr by the special Berlin cor respondent in "The Times." who de clares there had been a vast deteriora tion in the working habits of the popu lation. The demoralising effects are the worst among those who are paid tor useless occupations. It will be a long time before these in fluences are eradicated from the Ruhr character. All reports depict a steady economic decline and experts are of the opinion that even if the occupation ended to morrow it would be a long time before the district could be made to produce. It is doubtful whether it can be brought again to the past efficiency within mea. surable time. Meanwfhile there are no indications fhat the miners will capitulate. The signs are all the other way. Nobody believes that capitulation would settle anything.

It was unfair to ask what the Government was going to do before it had gathered public opinion from the promised publication of the papers.
