HC Deb 05 March 1952 vol 497 c426
45. Mr. Emrys Hughes

asked the Prime Minister if, in view of his repeated warnings that the presence of atom bombers in East Anglia involved great danger to Britain, he will propose the transfer of the American bombers now in Britain to American territory.

The Prime Minister (Mr. Winston Churchill)

I have nothing to add to the reply which I gave to the hon. Member on 21st November, 1951.

Mr. Hughes

Does the Prime Minister still hold the view that he expressed when he was the Leader of the Opposition, that these bases were a great source of potential danger to the people of this country, and is there not a case for considering this proposal on the ground that they bring greater danger than security?

The Prime Minister

That question is fully covered by my original answer.
