The Battle Ahead
MT spoke in place of Miss Pat Hornsby Smith, M.P. for Chislehurst to East Sheen Women Conservatives. There had been duplication of dates and Hornsby Smith had to keep a previous engagement at Fulham.
MT spoke on the battle ahead. On nationalisation of steel, MT commented that only little men would put party before the welfare of the State and that the high cost of living was partly due to needless government expenditure. Private enterprise was the alternative to nationalisation.
