The Laroque Plan was developed during the following months, and its substance reflected Laroque’s long standing acquaintance with the problems of social insurance as well as his views concerning the nature of social policy. While he sought to rationalise the structure of social insurance, this was but a prelude to the implementation of a universal system of social security. In his mind, its structure would provide for the participation of the insured in the management of its services, and this would promote a new climate of social solidarity which would transform the very nature of social relations in post-war France. In the meantime, his proposals provoked hostile reactions among the mutual aid societies and christian syndicalists, since they objected to the implementation of a caisse unique which did away with the administrative pluralism associated with the social insurance legislation of 1928-1930. This opposition proved unsuccessful at modifying the substance of these proposals, as was ultimately demonstrated by the drafting of the ordinances of October 1945.
