    WITH THE PRIME MINISTERS OF THE COMMONWEALTH COUNTRIES DUE TO GO INTO CONFERENCE WITH PRIME MINISTER HAROLD MACMILLAN IN LONDON ON SEPTEMBER 10, VISNEWS IS SENDING THIS MATERIAL OF SOME OF THE PERSONALITIES WHO WILL BE AT THE TALKS.

    LAST TIME THE COMMONWEALTH LEADERS CRIME TOGETHER WAS IN MARCH LAST YEAR..WHEN THEIR MEETINGS SAW THE WITHDRAWAL OF SOUTH AFRICA FROM THEIR RANKS. THEIR NUMBER REMAINED THE SAME AS CYPRUS WAS ACCEPTED FOR MEMBERSHIP BEFORE THE MEETING ENDED.

    SINCE THEN BRITAIN HAS GRANTED INDEPENDENCE TO FOUR TERRITORIES; SIERRA LEONE, TANGANYIKA, JAMAICA AND TRINIDAD. THESE NEW NATIONS HAVE ALL CHOSEN TO CENTER THE COMMONWEALTH AND REMAIN UNDER THE ECONOMIC AND DEFENSIVE PROTECTION THAT THE ASSOCIATION OFFERS.

    SOME OF THE OLDER COMMONWEALTH COUNTRIES, MAINLY CANADA, AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND, SEE THE POSSIBILITY OF BRITAIN'S ENTRY INTO THE EUROPEAN COMMON MARKET AS A THREAT TO THEIR ECONOMIES THAT HAVE BEEN BUILT UP UNDER THE UMBRELLA OF LOW IMPORT DUTIES FOR THE PRODUCE THEY EXPORT TO THE UNITED KINGDOM.

    THIS IS LIKELY TO BE THE MAJOR TOPIC IN THE DISCUSSIONS BETWEEN THE PRIME MINISTERS WHO EXPECT MR. MACMILLAN TO GIVE A CLEAR OUTLINE OF THE ASSURANCES THE SIX HAVE OFFERED TO PROTECT COMMONWEALTH TRADE.
