THE TIMES WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 17 1943

KHARKOV FALLS

CITY TAKEN AFTER FIERCE STREET FIGHTING

GERMAN S.S. ARMY CORPS ROUTED

RUSSIANS ADVANCING ON TAGANROG

The following special Soviet report was issued last night:-

On February 16 our troops, after a determined attack which eventually led to fierce street fighting, captured the city of Kharkov.

In the fighting for Kharkov our troops routed the German S.S. army corps, “The Reich,” and the “Adolf Hitler” tank division, the “Greater Germany” motorized division, and a number of German infantry divisions and special German units.

GOVERNMENT POLICY ON BEVERIDGE PLAN

ACCEPTANCE IN PRINCIPLE WITH SOME RESERVATIONS

LIVELY EXCHANGES IN THE COMMONS

The Government’s acceptance in principle of the Beveridge Report on social security was announced in the House of Commons yesterday by Sir John Anderson. He indicated the rejection of some of the proposals, and said there could be no final commitments at this stage.

Last night the executive body of the Labour Party decided to table an amendment expressing dissatisfaction at the Government’s policy and urging reconsideration with a view to “early implementation of the plan.”
