PEOPLES OP THE NATIONS Parliamentary Reporter. WELLINGTON, this day. By ratifying'the United Nations Charter, the nations will, for the first time in history, accept the obligation to work towards the objectives of high standards of living and full employment, says the Prime Minister, Mr. Fraser, in reporting on the San Francisco proposals and economic and social advancement.
If the obligations are loyally and unitedly carried out, the results, in Mr. Fraser's view, may go far in maintaining international peace and security.
"It was most gratifying to observe the extensive, and often unanimous, agreement of the representatives of the nations on many principles to which the New Zealand Government has always attached great importance," he says, "The result of that heartening measure of agreement is that the Charter provides for a concerted study of every factor leading to the unrest, hi economic and social matters, that the past quarter of a century has proved to be one of the root causes of misdirected ambition, selfishness and war itself."
