  • Description

    A mixed day for British Prime Minister Edward Heath. Arriving to address the final session of the Conservative Partly Conference at Brighton today (Saturday) he was jeered and jostled by angry Upper Clyde Shipyard workers--disgruntled at the prospect of redundancies.

    Inside the conference hall, Ms. heath was to receive they customary standing ovation as he wound up the session. His final message to delegates was one of confidence in Britain's future. But he also warned the unions to use restraint in future wage negotiation.

    This B.B.C. wrap-up starts with the demonstrations outside the hall. This was how the commentator saw them:
    Once inside the hall, Mr. Heath assessed Britain's new prestige achieved under the Conservative Government. Political commentator Hardiman Scott sums up the rest of his speech.
