    Item title reads - General Election battle. Political leaders speak through Pathe Gazette.

    M/S of Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin sat at a desk reading, he puts the paper down and starts speaking about his policies. He talks about the increase in jobs and says political upheaval will harm this. He aims for social improvement and to make a fitter nation. He also wants to strengthen the League of Nations and says no great armaments programme will be undertaken, only that which is sufficient to make Britain safe. He concludes by saying the country needs experienced men at the helm and it is no time for reckless experiments.

    Intertitle - 'Pathe Gazette is impartial in political matter and introduces Mr C. R. Attlee.'

    M/S of Clement Attlee, the leader of the opposition, sat at a desk. He says the Government has neglected issues like schools and unemployment benefit and is more interested in rearmament. He says the Government made a mess of foreign affairs and the poor have to pay the price. He is for a true national policy where nations co-operate to secure peace and everyone will enjoy the fruits of the earth.

    Intertitle - 'Other political leaders will give their views in the next issue of Pathe Gazette.'

    Note: the item starts at 01:50:17 after the Pathe titles.

    Note: a lavender tinted print of this story is available.

British Pathe captured many extraordinary events on film over its 80 year history but sometimes the cameras were switched on when tragedy struck.
