    London.

    MS of clock tower of Palace of Westminster (Big Ben). Shots of crowds gathered outside Palace of Westminster.

    Prime Minister James Ramsay MacDonald can just be seen amongst the crowds walking from Downing Street to the House of Commons. He goes through the gates into Old Palace Yard.

    Tilt down from clock as we hear Big Ben chime. People still are milling around. The voiceover is explaining the Parliamentary procedure that is going on in the House to start the new session after the formation of the National Government.
