May 9, 1947
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The Borough Council of Southwark, a working class district of London, today adopted a resolution expressing “horror and indignation” at recent attacks on and desecration of London synagogues.

The Southwark action was in support of a similar resolution of the Council of Stepney, another London borough. Both groups called on Home Secretary John Chuter Ede to ensure proper protection for synagogues and to introduce legislation banning racist and fascist activities.
