HC Deb 09 April 1941 vol 370 cc1560-1
46. Sir W. Davison

asked the Prime Minister whether he is now prepared to commend the Big Ben silent-minute observance to British citizens, so that, wherever possible, they should unite together in silent prayer for the speedy victory of our fight for freedom and justice?

The Lord Privy Seal (Mr. Attlee)

Yes, Sir. My right hon. Friend the Prime Minister would be glad to think that those of us who wish to join in silent prayer for victory are combining to use the opportunity with which the B.B.C. has provided them.

Mr. McGovern

Is the idea to substitute prayer for military action?
