HC Deb 16 December 1941 vol 376 c1812
38. Mr. Bellenger

asked the Prime Minister whether any organisation has been set up to co-ordinate strategic and tactical plans for the most effective conduct of the war by all the major Allied Powers?

Mr. Attlee

All necessary steps have been or are being taken to concert the military plans of the major Allied Powers. It would not be helpful to the objects which the hon. Member has in mind to have a detailed discussion at the present time in public. Statements will, however, be made from time to time to Parliament of the progress achieved in the co-ordination of the Allied effort.

Mr. Bellenger

Would it not be desirable to have an early statement on the matter, as an impression is growing up that our policy is what the Prime Minister would term a one-by-one policy?

Mr. Attlee

I am sure that my hon. Friend will correct that impression, but I will convey the point to the Prime Minister.
