Chapter Summary

Relations between the Generalitat and the Spanish Republican Government grew more tense as the war dragged on. Gains made for Catalan self-government in the first months of the revolution were never recognised or accepted by the Republican Government. The Esquerra believes that one or more of these decrees represents, or could represent, a reduction in the Generalitat's powers or at least a lack of consideration for the responsibilities carried out by the Generalitat. As for the war industries, there were no precepts in the constitution and no precepts in the Catalan Statute on which any of us might base our claim for the central government or the government of the Generalitat controlling or not controlling the war industries; but the war services were necessary and highly advantageous to place them under one command and to expedite even more rapidly the industrial centres.

Keywords: Catalan self-government; Esquerra; Generalitat; Spanish Republican Government
