HC Deb 22 October 1945 vol 414 cc1674-5
53. Mr. Garry Allighan

asked the Prime Minister whether he will move for a Select Committee to investigate the causes of the military unpreparedness which resulted in the British disasters of 1939–40.

The Prime Minister

No, Sir. I cannot see that any useful purpose would be served by such an investigation.

Sir W. Smithers

If such an investigation was made, would special attention be drawn to the utterances and actions of the present Leader of the House?
