§ 65. Mr. Bossom
asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware that certain local authorities have suspended action in connection with their air-raid precautions schemes, pending a discussion as to the amount of the cost of such schemes to be borne by the National Exchequer; and, in view of the vital necessity for the completion of such schemes, whether he can give an early reply to the requests made by the local authorities in this matter?
§ Mr. Bossom
While thanking my hon. Friend for that reply, as so many of these authorities are anxious to go ahead, will be get his Department at least to co-operate with them?
