§ 13. Mr. Purbrick
asked the Secretary of State for Air whether, in view of the larger bombs we now have available, he will arrange, at the first opportunity, for a heavy bomb to be dropped down the crater of Mount Vesuvius in order to make a practical test as to whether the disturbances created thereby will give rise to severe earthquakes and eruptions?
§ Sir A. Sinclair
All possible targets for our bombing attacks are carefully considered. It would not be in the public interest to say more.
§ Captain Strickland
Can the Minister give an assurance to the House that Bomber Command will not drop a "Purbrick" on this mountain?
