HC Deb 07 November 1944 vol 404 c1254
44. Professor Savory

asked the Secretary of State for War approximately how many dossiers of maps, plans, photographs and explanatory notes, prepared with a view to the invasion of Eire by the Germans, were recently discovered in a garage on the outskirts of Brussels.

Sir J. Grigg

The material about Eire was contained, so I understand, in about 2,000 booklets and dossiers, containing photographs and town plans, and in about 10,000,000 maps.

Professor Savory

May I ask the right hon. Gentleman to send a copy to the Government of Eire, with the congratulations of His Majesty's Government that Eire has been saved from invasion by the British Fleet and the Royal Air Force?
