Abstract: The study of homology groups $ {\mathfrak{B}_n}(\Pi ,A),\mathfrak{B}$ a variety, $ \Pi $ a group in $ \mathfrak{B}$, and $ A$ a suitable $ \Pi $-module, is continued. A 'Tor' is constructed which gives a better (but imperfect) approximation to these groups than a Tor previously considered. $ {\mathfrak{B}_2}(\Pi ,Z)$ is calculated for various varieties $ \mathfrak{B}$ and groups $ \Pi $.
