Labour's Way to Peace

Excerpt

'LABOUR'S WAY TO PEACE' is a serious attempt to interpret with directness and clarity the official policy of organized Labour, industrial and political, in the realm of foreign affairs, rather than an expression of the personal views of the author.

The principles of Labour's foreign policy have not varied since the world war; they have stood the test of time, and have proved both true and fruitful. But the principles have been re-stated and re-applied from time to time in the light of the changing and developing world situation. Two important considerations may be advanced in favour of a fuller re-statement of Labour's foreign policy at this juncture, and especially with regard to Peace and War: (1) the gravity of the international situation and the increasing talk of war, and (2) the fact that the Labour Party is the official Opposition and the obvious alternative to the National Government, and hopes soon to secure a majority with which to control the destinies of the nation.

Moreover, Labour believes that no aspect of the nation's responsibility requires a clearer understanding, more care and greater attention, than does the vast field of international relations.
