EARLIER, in all the regalia of
tradition, King George had read
to the opening session of the new
Parliament the Labor govern-
ment's policy speech which omit-
ted all mention of further nation-
alization or Socialist measures.
Churchill called 'a meeting of
the Conservative Party "shad-
ow cabinet" a few minutes after
Attlee had finished speaking.
If the Conservatives press the
issue to a tvote of confidence and
win, the government might have
to resign. This would force a new
national election on the heels of
the Feb. 23 -balloting in which
Labor was returned to power with
a precarious seven-seat majority.
Attlee said the debate on the
King's speech will go on until
next Monday. Churchill will lead
off for the opposition in the re-
sumed debate today.
