HC Deb 22 February 1945 vol 408 cc954-5
47. Captain Sir William Brass

asked the Prime Minister whether he will bear in mind when imposing peace terms upon Germany the use which has been made by that country of deliberate indiscriminate bombing of the civilian population by means of the V-weapons, in order that Germany may never again be allowed to manufacture missiles to be used for this method of warfare.

The Prime Minister

Yes, Sir.

Mr. Sorensen

May I ask the right hon. Gentleman whether steps will not be taken, on the defeat of Germany, to consider the whole question of the limitation or abolition of aerial warfare?

The Prime Minister

No, Sir. I certainly do not think that the victorious Allies should deprive themselves of the defences which are possible from the air.
