§ 28. Mr. MANDER
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will consider the desirability of taking action, similar to that being generally adopted in other countries, for giving instruction to the public in the proper precautions to be taken in the event of aerial invasion?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Sir John Gilmour)
I am not in a position to add anything to the statement made by the Prime Minister on the 21st March last.
§ Mr. MANDER
Does that mean that no information will be given to the public as to the precautions to take until after there has been an air raid; and would it not be better to give the information beforehand, as is being done in various Continental countries?
§ Sir J. GILMOUR
If the hon. Member will read the statement, he will see that it supplies a complete answer to his question.
Lieut.-Colonel SANDEMAN ALLEN
Would it not be better for us to see that we are strong enough in the air to drive off an enemy air raid?
§ Mr. H. WILLIAMS
Does the right hon. Gentleman think it desirable that an hon. Member of this House should imply that foreign nations will break their obligations under the Kellogg Pact?
