HC Deb 08 September 1942 vol 383 c65W
Sir R. Glyn

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether he will consider the revision of the present regulations in regard to the publication in the Press of localities attacked by enemy aircraft in this country in view of the anxiety caused to those who are away from home on work of national importance and who are left in doubt as to the particular place in the area which is mentioned in the papers and frequently listen in to the German broadcast in order to gain some information?

Sir A. Sinclair

The possibility of giving a more precise indication of the locality in which bombs have been dropped has been considered on numerous occasions and the official communiqués contain as much information as can safely be published without helping the enemy. The German broadcasts are not, of course, a reliable source of information on this or any other subject.
