    Pathe Studios, Oxford Street, London, England: SV, SCU, SCU, FCU Clement Davies speaking.



    SOUND EFFECTS.



    SV Clement Davies speaking.



    "We are equally opposed to both the Socialists and the Conservatives."



    SCU Clement Davies speaking.



    "The British mode of life is a liberal way of life, and I believe that the British people are liberal at heart and in thought. Everyday I hear from people who are sick and tired of the Socialist Government and of the Tories. They are fed up with class warfare and extremism, either of the Right or of the Left."



    SCU Davies speaking.



    "The Liberal Party enters this Election far stronger than it has been for over 20 years. We shall have 400 Liberal candidates in the field, and if you want the Liberal life of this country to continue;...that is, Social Reform without Socialism, profit-sharing for workers in industry, income-tax reform, sound administration, and bold tackling of our economic problems, a wide-world expansion of our trade, no more wasteful expenditure on peacetime conscription, but above all absolute respect for the liberty of the individual."



    FCU Davies speaking.



    "If you want these then you want a Liberal Government. If you want a Liberal Government you can have one this time by voting for the Liberal Candidate on the 23rd February next, so we liberals march on, wavering neither to the Right nor to the Left, but marching forward."



    GOOD SCENES.



    FCU Clement Davies speaking. (Mr. Wright saying 'Cut. Keep the camera going, keep the camera going, now say it again please. Thank you. Cut.) SCU, CU, SCU, CU. SCU Davies speaking. (silent.)
