Chamberlain Seen in Agreement with Pope

As Prime Minister Chamberlain returned from Rome, the Sunday Times, referring to the meeting between the British statesman and Pope Pius, said: “Papal policy and British policy have at present some obvious points of close contact especially regarding humanitarian problems like that of the persecuted refugees. The contacts established by the Prime Minister and Halifax were limited to the hearing and reciprocating of a vigorous allocution by the Pope. They had also the advantage of free and intimate conversations with important cardinals such as could scarcely have been carried on any other place.”
