    No title. A contribution to peace: Prime Minister, Ramsay MacDonald talks about National Defence.

    London.

    Ramsay MacDonald gives speech to camera from behind his desk (probably in either Palace of Westminster or Downing St).

    Mr. MacDonald talks about recent "white paper" and explains why government thinks it is necessary to increase money spent on defence. He sees it as a deterrent against war and makes reference to recent meeting in Geneva. Mr. MacDonald wants to see a universal deduction of arms but until that point he feels it unwise to reduce Britain's weaponry.

    Note: spacing between 01:11:55 and 01:11:58.

    Note: for search purposes also use Ramsey McDonald.
