I am a little concerned at the implications behind the Minister's words. Is he laying down as a suggestion to this House at this time of so-called national crisis that it is essential that we should retain secrecy as to whether the Government are requiring land for defensive purposes in order to get that land at a reasonable price? Is that behind the Minister's mind?
