To Compete or to Co-operate by Sir Harry Pilkington
Past President of the Federation of British Industries, and Chairman of Pilkington Brothers. Ltd.
British industry is continually being reminded of the blessings of competition, not least by the Restrictive Trade Practices Act which is just coming into operation; and yet, at the same time, industrialists are being increasingly exhorted to show a sense of responsibility to the community and to consult and co-operate with the Government, trade unions, and a host of public bodies. Sir Harry considers how far these two demands are compatible.
