    In the field of industrial relations, he welcomes the part played by the TUC / Trades Union Congress, speaking of partnership between managers and workers in industry and encouraging workers' share ownership in the companies who employ them.

    He goes on to to speak of world peace and the recent Conference of the four Heads of Government in Geneva in July, making the forthcoming Foreign Secretaries' meeting possible.
