From the perspective of the twenty-first century it may seem surprising that Jenks could not only rebuild his career, but do so whilst remaining politically active into the 1950s. Despite seeking to keep his different activities separate, the Peroni episode showed how his politics could threaten his Soil Association work. Although nowadays the links between Jenks’ activities are easily made, even at the time little separated them. This was most obvious with his work through the Research Committee of the RRA, which, beginning in 1947, published its report Feeding the Fifty Million in 1955, and his activities in the Union Movement Agriculture Group, which was founded in 1950 and issued None Need Starve in 1952.
