§ 48. Mr. CECIL WILSON
asked the Prime Minister whether any decision has been come to as to the methods to be taken for the protection of the civil population against poison gas; and, if not, when such decision may be expected?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
The problem of the protection of the civil population against gas attack is being closely studied both in its technical and its non-technical aspects. I cannot at the present time particularise the steps taken further than to say that they are directed to securing in the first place the provision of an adequate personnel suitably equipped and trained in protective measures and secondly the dissemination at the proper time of full information in regard to the best methods of self-protection.
§ Mr. WALLHEAD
Will the right hon. Gentleman hurry up these recommendations with regard to protection against poison gas, seeing that His Majesty's Government's foreign policy is bringing war appreciably nearer?
Lieut.-Colonel McINNES SHAW
Has this anything to do with the Labour speeches at the Bosworth by-election?
