Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Air Force. – in the House of Commons on 12th February 1941.
Alert me about debates like this
asked the Secretary of State for Air whether Rome has at any time been attacked by the Royal Air Force; and whether there are any objectives of military importance that would justify such an attack?
The answer to the first part of the Question is in the negative and to the second in the affirmative.
Might I ask the right hon. Gentleman whether the fact that Vatican City is in close proximity to the city of Rome has some relationship to the avoidance of bombing in that area?
I do not think the hon. Member will expect me to deal with such matters in public.
