To the Electors
Central Committee Rooms,
12, Station Road, Port Talbot,
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, October 21st, 1924.
IN offering myself for Election as your Representative in the New Parliament, I have the honour to submit for your careful consideration the Programme of Liberal Principles.
Never in the political history of this Country have the issues been so momentous; they are of supreme importance to the 37,200 men and women electors representing the homes dependent upon the important Coal, Iron, Steel, Tinplate, Shipping, and Allied Industries in this important constituency.
The Labour Party has held the reins of Office for a period sufficiently long to warn the people of this Country that their objective is SOCIALISM. THE RED FLAG IS A SIGN OF DANGER.
The Government, of its own accord chose to dissolve Parliament rather than submit to an enquiry into the withdrawal of the proceedings brought against a Communist newspaper for, in effect, inciting our Soldiers and Sailors to mutiny. Interference with the course of Justice amounts to a defiance of the Law of this Country. The reason given for objecting to an enquiry, viz., that a committee of ten men cannot be selected in the House of Commons to enquire and report impartially on the facts is THE GREATEST INSULT THE HOUSE OF COMMONS HAS EVER RECEIVED. Later disclosures have clearly revealed to the Electors THAT THE GOVERNMENT HAD SOMETHING TO HIDE.
