HC Deb 21 January 1941 vol 368 c43W
Mr. Gledhill

asked the Lord President of the Council whether he will consider the appointment of a small committee, consisting of qualified engineers and scientists, to investigate and report upon all ideas and inventions for dealing with night bombers?

Captain Balfour

All suggestions as to methods of dealing with the night bomber, from whatever quarter they are received, are carefully examined by the scientific, technical and operational staffs and advisers of the Departments concerned. As the best advice in the country is freely at the disposal of His Majesty's Government, I do not think that any useful purpose would he served by the creation of a new committee as suggested by my hon. Friend.
