FOSTER SOCIALISM Laski's Tribute To Churchill At Paris Conference N.Z. Press Association—Copyright Rec. 2 p.m. PARIS, Aug. 12. "Our Labour victory in Britain is only the beginning. Our real victory will be determined by our future audacity," said Professor Laski, chairman of the British Labour party, addressing the French Socialist party conference. The audience, as Professor Laski came forward, broke into the Internationale. "We have beaten Mr. Churchill's party, but I want to state to French and British Socialists that we owe Mr. Churchill very much," added Professor Laski. "Our Labour victory was simple. It was the result' of 50 years of propaganda. We want a similar big Socialist victory in France so that Britain and France will have the same objective and the same methods."
Professor Laski told the Paris Press that Labour would in no way lend support to the artificial upholding of Royalist and other regimes not in accord with the desire of the people, says Reuters correspondent. Professor Laski added that Spain should be liberated from the Franco regime. He emphasised that there was a complete change of attitude on the part of the British Government to Greek affairs. The general secretary of the British Labour party, Mr. Morgan Phillips, stated that Britain would take the lead in fostering Socialism on the Continent, but the British Socialists were definitely against a union with the Communist party.
