Labor party candidates are telling the voters, who will elect 830 members of Parliament next month. The Labor party is. of course, lef erring to the genetic effects of nuclear radiation. Its campaign, nowever. is cutting very ntue ii_e with Britons, who realize that they have been exposed to less than a chest X-ray dose of radiation as a result of the Nevada tests.

Meanwhile, with three years of rising employment and prosperity behind it the Tory party is going to the counti y full of confidence. This will be the voters' first op-poitumty to approve the new team of Prime Minister Sir Anthony Eden. Foreign Secretary Harold Macnullan and Chancellor of the Exchequer R. A. Butler.
