§ 57. Sir H. Morris-Jones
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department when he intends publishing the number of casualties from flying bombs; and what period the statement will cover.
§ The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Home Security (Miss Wilkinson)
I would refer my hon. Friend to the statement, covering the month of June, published on 14th July. Similar statements will be published for succeeding months.
§ Mr. Douglas
Do the figures for June cover casualties caused by piloted aircraft, as well as those caused by flying bombs?
§ Miss Wilkinson
The figures of June happen to relate entirely to casualties caused by flying bombs; there were no casualties through piloted aircraft. But, on security grounds, we think it would be undesirable if we published separate figures for casualties from piloted and from non-piloted aircraft. It would tell the enemy too much.
