assembled at Munich^ and we should endeavour to restore
European confidence by the removal of fears and suspicions.
" The ultimate aim of this Government, as I believe it must
be the ultimate aim of every Government, whatever its com-
plexion may be, is the improvement of the standard of living
of the people.   It is difficult to reconcile that with the con-
tinued piling up of armaments.   We should always have that
in mind.    What we are aiming at is, first, the limitation of
armaments by agreement—for unilateral disarmament will
help nobody—and, in the end, the practical abolition.   That is
looking very far ahead :  I shall not see it; but I do not see
why we should not get the first stages of it if we pursue a
consistent and persistent policy.    We shall never get far
unless   we  can  accustom,   ourselves   to  the  idea  that  the
democracies and the totalitarian States are not to be ranged
against one another in two opposing blocs, but that they can,
if they choose, work together not merely for the settlement of
differences after they have arisen, but also for the operation of
a constructive programme, a programme which will facilitate
the international exchange of goods and the regulation of
international relations in various ways for the good of all.
That is the policy which is sometimes called the policy of
appeasement.    That is the policy to which this Government
intends whole-heartedly to devote itself."
