  • Short Summary

    Stanley Baldwin and Ramsay MacDonald visit the Palace - one resigns, one accepts Office.

  • Description

    London.

    First British Labour Government. History-making scenes at Buckingham Palace; Stanley Baldwin hands in resignation, Ramsay MacDonald accepts Office.

    This item is an alternative version of story - LABOUR GOVERNMENT - also in G 1054. The first section of this version is the same as the original version.

    C/U of Ramsay MacDonald and Stanley Baldwin standing outside Buckingham Palace surrounded by a crowd, we then see them walk off frame. There are then two brief shots of their cars departing.

    Note: the first part of this version appears to be identical to the first version also in G 1054. AH 2000. Alternative spelling for search purposes - Ramsey McDonald.
