    London.

    Various shots of King George VI (Prince Albert, Duke of York) and Queen Elizabeth (the Queen Mother, Duchess of York) taking a tour around new blocks of flats in Shoreditch and Hoxton in the East End of London. They are accompanied by Minister of Health, Sir Kingsley Wood. A crowd of local people stand outside the flats and follow the royal party about.
