The effect of unsteadiness on mhd flow of a conducting incompressible viscous fluid in channels of varying cross section is considered. Assuming that the cross section of the channel varies slowly the first, second harmonics and the steady streaming solutions are obtained for a flow in which volume flux is prescribed. The parameters that govern the flow are \alpha, the Womersley parameter; H the Hartmann number, and Re the Reynolds number. The possibility of separation in the flow is discussed for channels with sinusoidal walls. The characteristic features of the steady streaming velocity as a function of \alpha, Re, and H are investigated for channels with different cross sections of physiological interest.
