    TRANSCRIPT: SEQ. 2: INTERVIEWER: LORD HOME, YOU HAVE BEEN HERE FOR FOUR DAYS. CAN YOU TELL US HAVE YOU HAD A FRUITFUL VISIT, AND ARE THINGS GOING WELL?



    HOME: YES, YOU KNOW WHAT WE CAME HERE TO DO. WE CAME TO SIGN A TREATY AND THAT WE HAVE DONE. AND I THINK IT IS A VERY IMPORTANT TREATY IN ITSELF. IT HAS GREAT VIRTUE AND ITS OWN MERITS IN THAT IT STOPS FALL-OUT AND IT STOPS MOST WASTEFUL PART OF THE ARMS RACE. THEN WE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO ADOPT IN THE FUTURE. AND WE HAVE HAD A GENERAL CONVERSATION WITH MR GROMYKO AND MR DEAN RUSK ON THESE POSSIBILITIES. OF COURSE, A LOT OF CONSULTATION HAS TO TAKE PLACE WITH OUR ALLIES IN THE FUTURE BEFORE WE CAN DECIDE BETWEEN THEM AND THE RUSSIANS WHAT SUBJECT HAS MIGHT BE THE MOST PROFITABLE TO PURSUE. BUT AT ANY RATE WE HAVE HAD VERY GOOD TALKS. AND THE ATMOSPHERE, I SHOULD SAY, IN OUR TALKS HAVE BEEN VERY DIFFERENT TO WHAT IT HAS BEN IN THE PAST.



    INTERVIEWER: IT WOULD BE QUITE A LONG JOB, WOULD IT ESTABLISHING BETTER EAST-WEST RELATIONS?



    HOME IT IS ALWAYS A LONG JOB, BECAUSE WE HAVE HAD A VERY LONG LONG PERIOD OF COLD WAR AND WE HAVE GOT OUT OF THAT. AND WE SHALL ONLY DO IT STEP BY STEP. BUT I THINK THE RUSSIANS AGREE TO THAT AS THEY ARE NEGOTIATORS - THEY DON'T MIND TAKING TIME.



    INTERVIEWER: THANK YOU LORD HOME, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
