This chapter explores the establishment of the Joint Working Party, including the DHSS and SSRC personnel. It surveys the setting up of the Research Programme, from the first discussions between the DHSS and SSRC in the summer of 1971, to the publication of the First Report by the Joint Working Party in August 1974. It explores the informal discussions between the DHSS and SSRC that took place in advance of the cycle speech, the first formal meetings of the Joint Working Party, and the composition of its membership. It traces the conceptual difficulties encountered by the members of the Joint Working Party in attempting to define ‘deprivation’, reflected in an important early paper ‘Approaches to research on transmitted deprivation’, and a conference held at the LSE on 15 April 1973.

Keywords:   Joint Working Party, DHSS, SSRC, Research Programme, cycle speech, deprivation
