HC Deb 05 June 1940 vol 361 c827
4. Colonel Wedgwood

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether the understanding that we should not bomb military objectives in Germany until they bomb us still holds, in spite of the bombing of Allied civilians in Poland, Norway, Holland and Belgium, and how much longer this is to continue without retaliation in kind?

The Secretary of State for Air (Sir Archibald Sinclair)

I know of no understanding of the character referred to. indeed, the right hon. and gallant Gentleman will be aware that the Royal Air Force has carried out a number of successful attacks against military objectives in Germany.
