HC Deb 21 August 1940 vol 364 c1288
27. Mr. Stokes

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether either the log book of the staff officer, Coastal Command, or that of the naval liaison officer, Coastal Command, shows whether the A.O.C.- in-C., Coastal Command, was informed of the evacuation of Narvik prior to the sinking of His Majesty's ship "Glorious."

Sir A. Sinclair

For reasons of security, the decision to evacuate Narvik, which was of the highest secrecy, was not recorded in the log books to which the hon. Member refers. The A.O.C.- in-C., Coastal Command was, however, informed of the decision.
