Parliamentary Notes

Our Parliamentary Correspondent writes: It was quite obvious that the House of Commons would not be in a mood to discuss physical training in view of the serious air bombard- ment of London and the threatened invasion. The atmosphere on Tuesday was sober and determined. Members had returned from their constituencies fully aware of their local problems, but anxious once again to hear from the Prime Minister anything he could tell them whether in open or secret session. He judged the atmosphere immediately on entering, and after he had made a short statement the Hotlse met in secret session and again on Wednesday.
