§ 8. Commander Sir Archibald Southby
asked the Secretary of State for Air, whether, in view of the success which was achieved by the Royal Air Force in their assault upon the dams in Germany, he will put the hydro-electric plant in the Val d'Aosta and the Rumanian oil wells, from which Germany gets supplies of oil, high on the list of priority targets?
§ Sir A. Sinclair
My hon. and gallant Friend may be assured that all suitable bombing targets are kept under constant review. It would not, however, be in the public interest to discuss the priority accorded to them.
§ Sir A. Southby
Does the right hon. Baronet appreciate, in regard to targets in Italy, that in view of the ordeal through which Malta has so triumphantly passed, now that we are able to do so it is about time that we bombed military targets in Rome?
§ Major-General Sir Alfred Knox
Is it advisable to ask a Question like this, which serves as a direct warning to the enemy?
