• Short Summary

    Sir Winston Churchill addresses young conservatives in his own constituency at Woodford.

  • Description

    Woodford, Essex.

    SCU. People applauding. SV. Sir Winston Churchill rises to make speech. CU. Lady Churchill. SCU. Sir Winston making speech (natural sound): "I have no doubt you have all been following the exhibition which the heads of the Russian State have been making of their tour through India and Burma. It has certainly been a surprising spectacle, and one which Her Majesty's Government will no doubt study carefully before they allow it, with suitable variants, to be repeated here (laughter). But the behaviour of their leader must not lead us to suppose that Russian power and capacity is not growing in many other directions......in the last ten years, the Soviet higher technical education for mechanical engineering has been developed both in numbers and in quality to an extent which far exceeds anything we have achieved. This is a matter which needs the immediate attention of Her Majesty's Government..."
