§ 24. Mr. DIXEY
asked the Home Secretary whether, having regard to the public anxiety regarding precautions against possible gas attack, he will state whether a satisfactory gas mask has been approved for defensive purposes and, if so, where can these be obtained; and whether the Government have considered any plan for the utilisation of underground shelters as a defensive precaution against gas attacks?
