HC Deb 06 March 1940 vol 358 c361
14. Mr. Purbrick

asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the threats made against this country by the German leaders in an attempt to intimidate the general public, he will now adopt a similar practice against the German public with a view to destroying their morale?

Mr. Butler

In my noble Friend's opinion, the German leaders have signally failed in their attempts to lower the morale of the Allies. For this, among other reasons, my Noble Friend would be reluctant to recommend the adoption of similar tactics by His Majesty's Government.
