Two British officials leave 10 Downing Street following a meeting of Prime Minister Chamberlain's War Cabinet. The Silhouette of them is seen as they pass through an archway. Next, Sir Howard Kingsley Wood, Secretary of State for Air, steps from Number 10, and walks close past the camera. Another official leaves the residence. He turns right and walks toward Horse Guards Road. Police make sure spectators stay on the sidewalk as he passes. Glimpse of a military officer leaving quickly, followed by a young official. The crowd standing dutifully, on the sidewalk (but just barely, all with their feet at the very edge). A man enters number 10 just as a uniformed messenger arrives. The man enters and the messenger makes his delivery and leaves. Lord Halifax, Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, is seen leaving next, together with Leslie Hore-Belisha, British Secretary of State for War. The camera follows them as they walk along Downing Street and across Whitehall-Parliament Street. They pass pedestrians who stop to watch them.
