  • Description

    LORD MORAN, SIR WINSTON CHURCHILL'S DOCTOR, WAS UNEXPECTEDLY CALLED TO HIS BEDSIDE AT 2 AM TODAY (TUESDAY). HE REMAINED AT HYDE PARK GATE UNTIL DAWN WHEN HE CAME OUT TO GIVE A STATEMENT TO THE WAITING NEWSMEN.

    AFTER A 5-HOUR ATTENDANCE, LORD MORAN EMERGED FROM THE CHURCHILL HOME AND SAID:
    EARLIER, LORD MORAN HAD ISSUED AN APPEAL TO REPORTERS OUTSIDE THE HOUSE TO DISPERSE, SAYING THAT LADY CHURCHILL WAS GOING TO HAVE "A HEAVY DAY AND IS SLEEPING AT THE FRONT OF THE HOUSE".

    BECAUSE OF SIR WINSTON'S GRAVE ILLNESS, THE PRIME MINISTER, MR. HAROLD WILSON, HAS POSTPONED THE EXPORTS SPEECH HE WAS DUE TO MAKE TODAY. THE GOVERNMENT HAS ALSO CANCELLED THE 700TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATIONS OF SIMON DE MONTFORT'S PARLIAMENT WHICH WAS TO BE MARKED BY A SPECIAL JOINT SITTING OF THE HOUSES OF COMMONS AND LORDS. IT IS CONSIDERED DOUBTFUL TOO, WHETHER MR. WILSON WILL GO TO BONN AND BERLIN FROM THURSDAY TO SATURDAY AS ARRANGED.
