§ 16. Mr. GINNELL
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty if he will explain why Essen has been immune from attack by British aircraft?
§ The FIRST LORD of the ADMIRALTY (Mr. Balfour)
I do not think it would be desirable to discuss military operations, actual or possible, by question and answer.
§ Mr. GINNELL
Will the right hon. Gentleman inform the House whether the immunity of Essen has any connection with the financial interest in subsidiary firms held by members of the British Cabinet?
