 British Prime Ministers: Attlee, Clement Richard (1883-1967)
During Attlee's tenure, independence within the Commonwealth was granted to India, a measure (in which he took great pride) that established the separate nation of Pakistan.
In April 1951 Attlee's already weak position (the Labour majority in the House of Commons had been reduced to six) further deteriorated when two Labour leaders, Aneurin Bevan and Harold Wilson (afterward prime minister), resigned from the government over the introduction of health-service charges.
Attlee's papers and correspondence are spread widely in various repositories around the country and many institutions hold the correspondence of the Prime Minister with a single individual, for example, the House of Lords Record Office holds his correspondence with Lord Beaverbrook from 1943 to 1961.
