I understand it will be run as a separate section, but who is to look after it has not yet been decided. I have tried to answer a number of the more important questions. Those that I have not answered I will inquire into and see whether any action can be taken. We are now passing through a period of difficulty and anxiety to which there has probably been no equal in our history. We shall not be borne down by these difficulties or worn out by these anxieties, because we are all constant and determined in our purpose to win through. In the hard months that lie ahead the House can and will, I am sure, give to the people of this country a great lead in determination, freedom and constancy of purpose.
