HC Deb 06 June 1944 vol 400 c1180
3. Commander King-Hall

asked the Secretary of State for War why Army chaplains are required to submit sermons for censorship if any civilians are to be present when the sermon is delivered.

Sir J. Grigg

If the sermon is to be broadcast or published in full in the Press, it is censored for reasons which I think are obvious. But for these exceptional cases, I am not aware that the sermons of Army chaplains are ever censored.

Mr. Shinwell

What are the obvious reasons?

Sir J. Grigg

I should have thought recent events made that pretty obvious.
