Enthusiasm in the House of Commons for the Cripps' Mission to Moscow has not diminished. On Tuesday, after the Prime Minister's statement on the military situation and " our inflexible resolve " to fight on, Mr. J. Morgan (Labour Member for Doncaster) said that the House ought at least to wish Sir Stafford Cripps " Good Luck " in the important job he had been given by the Government. This statement raised cheers in which—according to The Times—Mt Churchill joined.

On the same day, Motolov, Soviet Prime Minister and Foreign Commissar, was holding conversations with Von der Schulenberg, German Ambassador, as a manifestation— according to the News Chronicle Moscow correspondent--of the Soviet-German friendship and consultation pact at work.
