HC Deb 04 June 1940 vol 361 c753
13. Sir Reginald Clarry

asked the Secretary of State for War what steps he is taking to safeguard from enemy action and sabotage the road and rail bridges crossing the River Usk in Newport, Monmouthshire; and whether he is aware that these bridges are the vital traffic link between England and South Wales?

Mr. Eden

I do not think it would be desirable to give details, but my hon. Friend may rest assured that all such important places have been reviewed, and that such protection is being provided as is considered necessary.

Mr. Lawson

Does the right hon. Gentleman think it desirable that a Question of this kind should appear on the Order Paper?
