HC Deb 22 September 1943 vol 392 cc182-3
18. Sir A. Southby

asked the Secretary of State for Air how many bombing attacks have been made upon industrial plants in Denmark producing, or capable of producing, material useful for Germany's war effort?

The Secretary of State for Air (Sir Archibald Sinclair)

The works of Burmeister and Wain in Copenhagen were successfully bombed early this year. No other attacks have been made upon productive plant in Denmark.

Sir A. Southby

Is the right hon. Gentleman not aware that the productive capacity of Denmark is being harnessed to the German war effort, and should not some effort be made to interfere with it?

Sir A. Sinclair

Bombers are not few, but the targets are very many. I can assure my hon. and gallant Friend that they are all carefully studied before priorities are decided upon.
