    M/S, Mr Biggar talks chats to two workers, he is wearing an overcoat and bowler hat. L/S of Biggar on a raised platform addressing a large number of workers. The Camera pans over the crowd from left to right, almost the entirety of the workforce are wearing flat caps. One man can be seen holding onto a drainpipe on the side of the building to get a better view.

    M/S of Biggar giving his speech, he is very animated and expressive, he appears to be holding a piece of white paper in his left hand. L/S of the workforce - they raise their hands as if they are voting for something.

    Good side profile C/U of Biggar presumably after his speech he is reading, he turns to look directly at the camera, and talks to someone off screen.
