HC Deb 19 May 1919 vol 116 c47W

asked the Prime Minister whether he has received a request from the Empire Movement Committee that Empire Day shall be officially recognised as a day of prayer for the safety and welfare of the British Empire; and whether this project can receive the support of the Government?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. It would not, in any case, be possible to make satisfactory arrangements for the general observance of next Empire Day in the manner suggested by my hon. Friend.
