    GRIMOND SPEAKING: "LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, I APPEAL TO YOU TO GO OUT OF THIS HALL AND SEARCH NO LONGER FOR LIBERALS. SEARCH FOR THE BRITISH PEOPLE IN ALL THEIR STRANGE MULTIPLICITIES AND CONVINCE THEM THAT THE GREATEST THING THEY CAN DO FOR DEMOCRATIC POLICY IS TO SEND BACK A STRONG BAND OF LIBERALS TO THE HOUSE OF COMMONS AND MUSTER THE LARGEST POSSIBLE LIBERAL VOTE WHEN IT COMES TO POLLING DAY IN OCTOBER. (APPLAUSE)

    Background: NO ACTUAL DATE HAS BEEN FIXED YET FOR THE BRITISH GENERAL ELECTION, BUT IT CAN'T BE MORE THAN TWO MONTHS AWAY, AND MOST OBSERVERS THINK IT IS MUCH CLOSER. ALL THE PARTIES WHICH WILL BE CONTESTING THE ELECTION HAVE THEIR CAMPAIGN UNDERWAY, READY TO SLIP INTO TOP GEAR ONCE THE PRIME MINISTER ANNOUNCES THE ACTUAL DATE.

    THE LIBERAL PARTY -- THE THIRD, AND VERY MUCH THE MINORITY PARTY REPRESENTED IN THE HOUSE OF COMMONS IN THE PRESENT PARLIAMENT, ENDED A TWO-DAY CONFERENCE IN LONDON TODAY (SATURDAY). DELEGATES HEARD A VIGOROUS SPEECH FROM THEIR LEADER, MR. JO GRIMOND ATTACKING THE TWO MAIN PARTIES THE CONSERVATIVES AND SOCIALISTS -- AND SOUNDAING A RALLYING NOTE AS THE CAMPAIGN MOVES TOWARDS ITS FINAL PHASE.

    THE LIBERAL PARTY IS PINNING ITS HOPES ON THE FACT THAT THE TWO MAIN PARTIES WILL HAVE ABOUT EQUAL STRENGTH IN THE NEW PARLIAMENT, AND THAT THEY WILL BE ABLE TO EXERT THEIR INFLUENCE, THROUGH LENDING THEIR SUPPORT TO ONE SIDE OR THE OTHER.
