This would have di-. Tided murder into two degrees, one carrying the death penalty and the other life imprisonment The vote was 99 to 19. . It is thought in political quarter that the Government now may drop the clause from the Criminal Justice Bill and introduce it in another session as a separate bill This would , prevent the holding up o a, bill which all parties agree contains many valuable judicial reforms. Among first degree murders would have been that of a policeman or prison official, a second murder, murder after rape, aod systematic poisoning. ' The Government's compromise arose roan the Lord's rejection of an earlier Commons proposal. This, passed on a free nooperty) vote against the Government" advice, wvuld have suspended the death penalty alUfrther for murder for teat period of five years.

The courtroom was jammed with ' Germans who showed -by their grim attitude and occasional expressions of disbelief what was In their minds they'resented the woman who had special air raid shelters" and armored trains.

July 20. (Reuters) A five-year consolidation plan involving several new nationalization projects Is believed to be under consideration by leaders ot the Labor Party, it was learned today. The projects are said to be of a social rather than Industrial character. The party also Is said to be considering official control of the distribution of the "essentials of life". Labor next week begins its fourth year of office as the Government party and. with only about 20 months remaining before the next general election. Is working intensively on a fresh program to capture the imagination of the electors. Most of the key schemes of nationalization of industry will be completed before this Parliament ends and there will be no comparable " program of fresh legislation for the general election. A basic feature of the provisional proposals will be an all-round safeguard of a minimum living standard. Labor quarters are understood to be impressed by the operation of the Government's "freeze wages, prices, profits" policy, which now has been in operation for several months. It is claimed that the policy already is reflected in a marked fall in prices of certain essential commodities, as well as the gradual disappearance of various "rackets" and black markets.
