Abstract:The friendly society movement died a slow death. The movement's leaders were ill-prepared to defend their principles when the 1908 Old Age Pensions Act and 1911 National Insurance Act circumscribed their role. In 1946, they found themselves completely unable to counter the Attlee government's plan to eliminate their role as "approved" insurance providers under the National Insurance Act, and they faded into near irrelevance thereafter.
