HC Deb 12 June 1945 vol 411 c1459
45. Mr. Wootton-Davies

asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the announcements made of the size of the U.S. military and naval forces which are to be brought to bear against Japan, some equivalent statement can be made as to the scale on which British assistance is to be given in the war in the Far East.

Sir J. Anderson

My right hon. Friend the Prime Minister is not prepared to say anything more at this moment than that we shall do our utmost.

Mr. Wootton-Davies

Is it not time we ceased hiding our light under a bushel? The American Government say what they are doing; why cannot we?

Sir J. Andersen

That is a matter which is always kept in view.
