asked the Secretary of State for Air the approximate weight of bombs dropped on Germany and Italy by the Royal Air Force during May?
Aircraft of Bomber Command dropped approximately 12,500 tons of bombs on Germany in May. The total amount of the tonnage of bombs dropped on Italy by aircraft operating from North Africa is not available.
Can my right hon. and gallant Friend say whether this supply will increase month by month in future?
We look forward with confidence to being able to increase the supply of bombs delivered to Germany in due course.
