This chapter examines the response and reactions of parliament, pressure groups, and the national press to the purposes or conduct of the National War Aims Committee (NWAC). It suggests that while there were concerns about civil liberties, much of the opposition against the NWAC was related to fears of future electoral advantage. It also mentions that some pressure groups were hostile to the NWAC and national press attitudes towards it were rarely complimentary.

Keywords:   National War Aims Committee, NWAC, parliament, pressure groups, national press, electoral advantage, civil liberties
