    Background: SIR WINSTON CHURCHILL PASSED ANOTHER RESTFUL NIGHT, BUT HIS CONDITION IS A LITTLE WEAKER, HIS DOCTOR REPORTED TODAY (MONDAY).

    THE BULLETIN - SEVENTH TO BE ISSUED SINCE THE 90 YEAR-OLD STATESMAN SUFFERED A STROKE LAST FRIDAY - SAID: "SIR WINSTON HAS HAD A RESTFUL NIGHT. HE IS A LITTLE WEAKER, BUT OTHERWISE THERE IS NOTHING TO REPORT." IT CAME HALF AN HOUR AFTER SIR WINSTON'S DOCTOR AND FRIEND, LORD MORAN, HAD CALLED AT THE CHURCHILL RESIDENCE AT HYDE PARK GATE, LONDON.

    LORD MORAN, 82 YEARS-OLD HIMSELF AND SIR WINSTON'S FRIEND FOR QUARTER OF A CENTURY, WHO SIGNED THE BULLETIN, WAS ASKED BY REPORTERS WHETHER SIR WINSTON WAS TAKING ANY NOURISHMENT. "I CAN'T ANSWER THAT," HE REPLIED.

    BEFORE DRIVING OFF HE SAID THE NEXT BULLETIN WOULD BE ISSUED THIS EVENING (2030 HRS GMT).

    (THE STATEMENT IS REPEATED FOR THE PRESS.)
