§ Mr. LEACH
asked the Secretary of State for Air whether he will cause to be prepared a return showing the number of occasions since 1918 on which British bombing aircraft have been employed against people with whom this country was not officially at war, for what purpose such aircraft were employed on each occasion, the character and extent of the damage inflicted, if any, the number of persons killed or wounded, and the estimated cost to this country of all such operations?
§ Sir S. HOARE
I imagine that the hon. Member has in mind the action of aircraft in Iraq. If this be the case, I would refer him to the reply which my hon. Friend the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies has given to-day to the hon. Member for Nottingham Central (Mr. Berkeley).
