Not that there were no differences of opinion among his cabinet members, but Atlee, by his gentle nature and positive approach, always managed to keep them together and had control over them. Besides being sympathetic to the cause of India, and granting India freedom, he did many a constructive activity for his country too, like nationalization of some industries, and starting National Health Scheme.
