    SOUND EFFECTS



    SCU Attlee



    Well I now have left the House of Commons after 33 years and it is rather a break. Because the House of Commons is a great fellowship.



    CU I should wish that my successor whoever he is will receive the same loyal support that I received over these last 20 years.



    T.V. PERSON



    Mr. Attlee have you any misgiving on going into the house of Lords.



    SCU ATTLEE



    Well I dont know exactly misgivings I shall have to walk cautiously there you know the sign of Orotony is quite different in the House of Commons than in the House of Lords. I shall have to try and find out what it is before I make a speech there.
