Oral Answers to Questions — British Army – in the House of Commons on 20th October 1942.
Alert me about debates like this
asked the Secretary of State for War how many attacks have been made on the enemy forces occupying the Channel Islands by British
Forces since the German occupation, and with what effect?
I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer given by the Deputy Prime Minister to my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Ayr Burghs (Sir T. Moore) on 13th October. I have nothing to add to that answer.
But that was no answer; the right hon. Gentleman did not give any information. Are we to understand that the Germans are not aware of these attacks?
My hon. Friend can understand only that it would be unbecoming in me to claim greater knowledge than the Deputy Prime Minister had.
This is unusual modesty on the part of the right hon. Gentleman, is it not?
