    TRANSCRIPT: SEQ. 2: MANLEY:"Distinguished Guests, I announce that her Majesty the Queen has been graciously pleased to confer the championship of honour on Mr. Smith.... ...must undertake to ensure that Namibia throws off the Yoke and that Rhodesia will soon join us at this table as Zimbabwe ..and it is a new chapter with that story with a new human outcome that we must now commence to write on behalf of the disadvantaged of the world."



    SEQ. 3: SMITH:"..Prime Ministers, Excellencies, Ladies and Gentlemen; since I've been Secretary General.... (he thanks the Jamaican Prime Minister for the arrangements made for the Commonwealth conference)



    ..The present economic crisis is of immediate and vital concern to all Commonwealth countries. It has been revealed with startling clarity that the present system of world economic relationships is both unjust and inefficient



    ...The crisis of international economic relations is shaking the foundations of the status quo. This is painful but it gives us a chance to build something new and something better...The Commonwealth is well equipped to work out and give a lead to the international community...



    ..At this meeting Mr. Chairman, you and your colleagues must choose my successor. I wish him good luck and thank you for your trust and cooperation."
