HC Deb 19 December 1945 vol 417 c1338
73. Mr. W. J. Brown

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air, whether he will take steps to abolish compulsory church parades in the R.A.F.

Mr. Strachey

This is not a question for the Royal Air Force alone, but for the three Services and the Government.

Mr. Brown

Does not the Under-Secretary of State for Air realise that compulsory Christianity is a contradiction in terms, and is he not prepared to play his part in abolishing this unchristian and almost blasphemous practice?

Mr. Strachey

That is a question for a theological Ministry.
