§ 51. Mr. THURTLE
asked the Secretary of State for Air if his Department is collecting information as to the extent of underground accommodation existing in London suitable for providing protection from the effects of aerial bombing?
§ Sir S. HOARE
This matter does not come within the scope of my Department, but I have been asked to say in reply that it would not be in the public interest to give the information requested in this particular case.
§ Mr. THURTLE
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that there is considerable public anxiety on this matter, and will he not, in order to allay that public anxiety, make a statement on the subject?
