"ERA OF PROGRESS"
British Labour Victory Hailed In Dominion AUCKLAND OFFICIAL'S VIEW Labour's victory meant the ushering in of a new era of progress, declared Mr. J. W. A. Stead, president of the Auckland Labour Representation Committee, in a statement this morning. "Through the long war years," said Mr. Stead, "the working classes of the British Commonwealth have 'struggled,- fought and died for freedom, justice and a better world, a world in which the liberty, equality and brotherhood of man could be reached, a world in which there must be a real chance of lasting peace, freedom from want and from exploitation. The triumph of Labour in Britain is one of the greatest gains ever made by the working man for real democracy and progress, and is the opening of a new era of progress throughout the world.
"A period of great difficulty faces Labour's Government in Britain, but triumph over all difficulties it will. The Labour movement in this country is thrilled, and warmly congratulates the Labour party in Britain. The new British Government can be assured of the heartiest co-operation of all New Zealanders of goodwill."
