Cuba and the Labour Party

First broadcast: 24 October 1962

Following a meeting between the Labour Party and the TUC, political correspondent Hardiman Scott interviews Labour Party leader Hugh Gaitskell on the Cuban missile crisis as the USA enforces a blockade around Cuba. Gaitskell disapproves of the apparent installation of missiles in Cuba by the Soviets, but is also concerned about the blockade. However, the evidence that Cuba is hosting Soviet missiles seems conclusive.
