NotesImage 1: See LSE3164 for published cartoon. News: Individualist Group and Liberty -
Statement of Beliefs. The Individualist Grup, which consists of "members of different
political parties who are united in the desire to restore to British public life that
spirit of individual liberty and responsibility which characterized its period of greatness
and which is to-day gravely threatened" have issued a broad statement of beliefs, within
which there may be many minor differences of view... Trade, whether domestic or
international, should be freed from unnecessary restrictions, and profit (regarded as a
premium on economy and efficiency) should be regarded as a proper motive of commerce....
The signatories are:- Ernest J.P. Benn (chairman) ... W.R. Inge... The Times Aug. 15. Image
