HC Deb 14 December 1950 vol 482 c1331
33. Mr. Ian Harvey

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he has now brought up to date the war-time system of early warning of the approach of hostile aircraft or self-propelled missiles.

Mr. de Freitas

I cannot add to the answer given to the hon. Member for Basingstoke (Mr. Donner) on 9th November.

Mr. Harvey

Will the hon. Gentleman bear in mind that the increased speed of these potential weapons makes it imperative that our developments should be pushed forward rapidly?

Mr. de Freitas

We are certainly bearing that in mind and so is the Air Ministry, with whom we are having discussions.
