  • Description

    Britain's Prime Minister Harold Wilson cautioned industrialised countries against rushing headlong in to boom conditions as the world's economic situation improves. Mr. Wilson was speaking on the second day of the two-day conference of leaders of 18 European Socialist parties meeting in Elsinore, Denmark, on Sunday and Monday (18 and 19 January).

    More than 70 delegates representing the Socialist parties from all western European countries attended the meeting held in the heavily guarded Danish Lands Organisation School, 40 kilometres (25 miles) north of Copenhagen.

    In his address Mr. Wilson spoke mainly of unemployment and inflation. He said he believed the developed industrial countries were recovering from an economic slump although unemployment was growing and now totalled more than 14 million in the 10 largest industrial nations.

    He said that the most urgent task now facing these countries was to ensure a steady and lasting return to prosperity. They must resist a temptation to create an out of control boom, he said.

    Other topics discussed at the two day meeting included European unification, international economic developments and relations with communist parties.

    Prior to the conference, leaders from the five Nordic countries - Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland and Iceland - met separately to discuss a joint Nordic stance, including their attitude towards the "Cod War" between Britain and Iceland.
