More information from the web about Neville Chamberlain




Neville Chamberlain
Prime Minister of the United Kingdom
September 1938
after signing the Munich Pact with Hitler


"We, the German Führer and Chancellor, and the British Prime Minister, have had a further meeting today and are agreed in recognizing that the question of Anglo-German relations is of the first importance for our two countries and for Europe.

"We regard the agreement signed last night and the Anglo-German Naval Agreement as symbolic of the desire of our two peoples never to go to war with one another again."

Wild cheers erupted, the crowd reiterating, reverberating the last syllables of the Prime Minister's statement. He continued.

"We are resolved that the method of consultation shall be the method adopted to deal with any other questions that may concern our two countries, and we are determined to continue our efforts to remove possible sources of difference, and thus to contribute to assure the peace of Europe."

Later at 10 Downing Street, he added,

"My good friends, for the second time in our history, a British Prime Minister has returned from Germany bringing peace with honor. I believe it is peace for our time... Go home and get a nice quiet sleep."
