§ Mr. Speaker
I should like to inform the House that during the Recess I accepted an invitation from Air Chief Marshal Sir Sholto Douglas, Commander-in-Chief, British Air Force of Occupation, to visit Germany. I had the opportunity of seeing the effects on such towns as Cologne and Berlin, as well as on Kiel Harbour, of the bombing by the Royal Air Force. I also had the pleasure of meeting many distinguished officers and other ranks who are still on duty in Germany. I am sure the House will appreciate the courtesy of this invitation to its Speaker and approve my having accepted it.
