§ 47. Mr. LAMBERT
asked the Prime Minister whether the Imperial Defence Committee has considered the vulnerability of the naval bases of Chatham, Sheerness and Portsmouth to aerial attack; and what have been the conclusions reached?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. It would not be in the public interest, however, for details of the conclusions reached or the measures taken to be disclosed.
§ Mr. LAMBERT
Are there no means whereby we may obtain some information on this matter, which is causing legitimate anxiety?
§ Mr. D. GRENFELL
Is it not the case that there are no means of rendering invulnerarble the places referred to?
