COMMONS DIVISION AFTER BEVERIDGE DEBATE

GOVERNMENT MAJORITY 216

MR. MORRISON’S REPLY TO LABOUR AMENDMENT

The Labour Party, in spite of appeals by Ministers at a stormy party meeting, yesterday pressed its amendment on the Beveridge report to a division in the House of Commons, which gave the Government a majority of 216 votes.

THE TIMES THURSDAY MARCH 4 1943

RUSSIANS OCCUPY RZHEV

A LARGE HAUL OF TANKS AND GUNS

CONTIRUED ADVANCE FROM KHARKOV

RAILWAY CENTRE CAPTURED WEST OF KURSK

The Russians announced in a special report last night the capture of Rzhev. Two thousand of the garrison were killed, it was added, and 112 tanks and 78 guns were taken. The Germans earlier in the day admitted that their troops had evacuated the town.

The railway junction of Lgov, 50 miles west of Kursk, has been taken by the Russians, who are also continuing their westward advance from Kharkov. On the Kuban front they have occupied several more places.
