§ 45. Sir A. Southby
asked the Prime Minister whether he has any official information to show that the Italian Air Force are assisting the Luftwaffe on the Russian front; and, if so, why do we not attack military targets in Italy, particularly in Rome and in the Val d'Aosta, in order to assist our Russian Allies by opening a second aerial front in Italy?
§ Sir A. Southby
Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether any communications, direct or indirect, have passed between His Majesty's Government and any authority in Italy regarding aerial action by us against Italy; and, further, whether the time has not arrived for us to assist our Army in Egypt by bombing the source of power which supplies the transport of German troops to Egypt?
