HC Deb 14 October 1946 vol 427 cc605-6
45. Sir Hugh Lucas-Tooth

asked the Prime Minister what actual attempts were made by the Germans to invade this country with land forces during the year 1940; and if he is prepared to make a statement about the circumstances lead- ing up to all military units in the United Kingdom receiving a warning that invasion was impending on the evening of a date in September, 1940.

The Prime Minister (Mr. Attlee)

As I promised the hon. and gallant Member for Stockport (Wing-Commander Hulbert) on 6th May, I have examined the possibility of making a statement about German plans for invading this country in 1940. I now hope to be able to make, early in the new Session, a statement covering both the German invasion plans and the events referred to in the second part of the Question.
