HC Deb 14 October 1942 vol 383 cc1608-9
14. Mr. Simmonds

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether, in view of the ascertained results of our bombing raids over Germany, he will consider whether, instead of the more frequent employment of smaller forces, it is not desirable to concentrate large numbers of aircraft against specific areas, even if at longer intervals?

Captain Balfour

I can assure my hon. Friend that his suggestion will be borne in mind.

Mr. Simmonds

Will the Minister bear in mind that Bomber Command is the only arm of our Services which is able to strike at Germans in Germany, and will he therefore see that all the resources of Bomber Command are utilised to give the maximum effect?

Captain Balfour

I am sure that the Commander-in-Chief, Bomber Command, will take note of what my hon. Friend has said.
