HC Deb 11 February 1929 vol 225 cc27-8
45. Sir R. THOMAS

asked the Prime Minister if he will cause the objections of the Committee of Imperial Defence to the construction of a Channel tunnel to be set forth in detail in a White Paper, for the information of this House and the public?

The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Baldwin)

The answer is in the negative. In this connection I would refer the hon. Member to the very full statement which the right hon. Gentleman the Leader of the Opposition made on the 7th July, 1924, when he was Prime Minister.


Is not the right hon. Gentleman aware that the House is much more interested in what the present Prime Minister has to say than in what the late Prime Minister said?


Will the Prime Minister say if there is any good reason why the reasons of the experts of the Committee of Imperial Defence should not be made public?


The question really refers to the future I am unable to add anything to the observations made by the late Prime Minister.
