• Short Summary

    Nye Bevan speaking on post war housing problem and its solution.

  • Description

    London.

    A man presents Mr Aneurin (Nye) Bevan, Minister of Health, to a large gathering of National Federation of Building Trades Operatives - natural sound. The man thanks Mr Bevan for coming to address the gathering. Mr Bevan rises to speak - natural sound. He addresses the gathering as comrades. Something is wrong with his mike and there is a jump. Mr Bevan talks about housing policy, comparing the current situation with the appalling situation at the end of the last war. He accuses Tories for the 50 years of the negligence of the house building. He talks about production of modern houses in large numbers and attacks private enterprise. HE talks about the fighting black market builders, etc. Crowd applauds occasionally.

    Natural sound only - jumpy and incomplete, only sections of the speech are heard.
