    TRANSCRIPT: NEWSMAN: "What is the general feeling in the business and financial world in London?"



    (SEQUENCE 3): SIR GEOFFREY GIBBS: "In what sort of way?"



    NEWSMAN: "Well, would you say business on the whole is against it (economic sanctions against Rhodesia) or for it?"



    SIR GEOFFREY: "Well, I think they certainly hate sanctions. I mean they hate sanctions on anybody. It's never a popular thing to do but I think the average person in London thought there was no alternative but putting them on".



    NEWSMAN: "Sir Geoffrey, I'm told that a daily newspaper in London this morning suggests that your brother might resign because of ill health. In your own personal knowledge is there any truth in this?"



    SIR GEOFFREY: "Absolutely none".



    NEWSMAN: "Johnson, Daily Mirror (London morning newspaper). Are you in a position to talk about the position of your brother?"



    SIR GEOFFREY: "I'm not really, I'm afraid. Only I find him extremely well and much better that I expected. And in very good heart".
