§ 37. Mr. Stokes
asked the Secretary of State for War whether the Forces fighting in Italy are now equipped with an effective mine-clearing tank; and, if so, whether he will state the type?
§ Sir J. Grigg
Our Forces in Italy are equipped with the best mine-clearing devices available, but it would clearly not be in the public interest to give particulars of them.
§ Mr. Stokes
Has the right hon. Gentleman read General Alexander's statement that "all roads lead to Rome, but unfortunately all the roads are mined"? Is one to infer that mine-clearing equipment is totally inadequate?
