HC Deb 12 February 1929 vol 225 c221

asked the Prime Minister whether any scheme will be issued to local authorities and others concerned for the protection of town populations from chemical gases in future warfare; providing for gas-proof rooms, flushing of streets with appropriate chemicals, decontaminating clothing, and providing first-aid and removals to hospitals; and what steps are being taken to provide the necessary preliminary training in these matters?

The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Baldwin)

The problem of the protection of the civil population against gas attack is being closely studied in all its aspects, including those specifically referred to in the question by the hon. Member. The need for the preliminary training of personnel and for the preparation of full and precise instructions to all concerned is not being overlooked.


Does the Prime Minister really expect another war?


Is it not the best protection for this country to have a Government which pursues a policy of peace, and not one of provocation?
