Mr. Churchill said he had long held the opinion that Prussia tras ihe most, dangerous pare of Germany, and commented: -I would have begun by separat- ing Prussia from the rest of Ger- manv.

There were Germans in the reich "and we must live with them." "Industries which make modern war posiible must be subject to ceaseless he said.

Agriculture Minister Gardiner said he was planning to introduce an amendment to the PJF.A-A- act to Dermit any province to withdraw which wished" to do so. This "would enable IJanitoba set up its own crop insurance scheme should it wish to take this action.
