I am advised that the napalm bomb is a tactical weapon which would be very inefficient in use against civilian centres of population. If, nevertheless, it were used against the civilian population of this country, no Civil Defence measures additional to those already contemplated would be needed.
I am never satistied on points on which improvements could obviously be made, and I shall do everything I can to see that the priorities and importances which the hon. Gentleman has mentioned are more widely known.
Does not the right hon. and learned Gentleman see any hope at all of returning to the more civilised practice of pre-20th century days when wars were fought between combatants and when non-combatants still had some rights?
