SOUND EFFECTS. SCU Mr. Eden speaks:- "I want to start by reducing the existing tension between East & West."
CU Mr. Eden continues:- "We must be strong if we are to play our full part in the world. But we don't stand alone. There is our great Commonwealth & Empire family spread across the world but United in its endeavour for peace."
FCU Mr. Eden concludes:- "That partnership is our life & faith. We have also a close unity with the Countries of the North Atlantic Treaty - that's a Unity that threatens no-one, it is entirely defensive in character, we are trying to establish a new nation, on a new basis, with the nations of the WORLD. And I believe that in doing that, our experience & our understanding will have an important part to play. That is the objective for which I work, by perseverance, to seek & find the peace I believe that is what the whole of the British people want to do."
