TUESDAY, MARCH 14, 1950 BLYTHEVILLE (AUK.) COURIER NEWS PACE SEVEN Labor Rallies for Nea Tory Attack By William N. Oatis «• LONDON, .March 14. W')—Britain's Labor government, victorious hi two crucial policy tests, mobilized its slim majority in llio House of Commons today to beat a tlilrd Conservative attack on Laboritc Bpcntiing policies. By rounding up every available I,abor!te member, including some f|itrt.]stck-bcds, Prime Minister At- tJV's government last night won a 25-vote majority against a Tory motion criticizing its house record. The vote was 314 to 289. Test r.ast Week The first test came last week, only a few days after the newly elected Labor government, with its majority in the House of Commons whittled to only six scats, bs- gnn its second term. That vote showed a Labor victory of only 14 votes against Conservative Leader Winston Churchill's attacks on the government's program to nationalize the Iron and steel industry. Under the British parliamentary system, the government must resign ' If it loses a vote on any Important issue. It is doubtful that even the Conservatives really want to topple the government and go through another election so soon after last month's poll: Churchill Dues Labor Tonight's test comes in a Con-| servative motion saying the House of Commons "deplores the failure of the chancellor of the exchequer to enforce his own instructions to government departments not to overspend so extensively their estimates for the current year." Sir Stafford Cripps. Britain s austere budget chief, has promised to answer the Tory accusation in the debate preceding the voting, despite the fact he has a bad cold. Several government departments # asking for extra iupropriations nulling to 148,402^65 pounds ($315.526.622). Vole After Bitter Debate The vote on Housing yesterday followed a bitter debate in which Conservatives hacked away Health Minister Aneurin Bevan who has charge of the housing program. They claimed the program had been a flop and declared thn had building been put into th< hands of private enterprise mon homes would have gone up. Bevan retorted that the Conserv ntivcs wanted to. put housing ir- th hands of speculators who woiili ignore low-cost building. Bevan may come up for mor lambasting in today's debate, sine his ministry is asking for ricarl two-thirds of the announced cxtr appropriations request to run th national health service.
