I put this Question down to the Prime Minister. May I ask the hon. Gentleman whether, supposing he found himself in action in a tank with a 2-pounder gun of effective range of 600 yards, against a German tank firing a 15-pound projectile with an effective range of 2,000 yards, he would consider his equipment adequate, ample or equal?
I regret that I should not be justified in giving any information about the design and armament of British tanks beyond that which was promised to my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Twickenham (Mr. Keeling) in reply to a Question on 7th July.
