HC Deb 20 April 1939 vol 346 cc470-1
64. Mr. W. Joseph Stewart

asked the Lord Privy Seal whether he is aware that in the Boldon urban district, County Durham, in connection with air-raid precautions, there is no mobilisation equipment; and what is being done to meet the situation?

Sir J. Anderson

Mobilisation equipment for county districts cannot be issued until the county council have notified my Department of the depots to which it is to be sent for storage, and in respect of Durham this information was not furnished until quite recently. Considerable quantities of equipment have already been issued to the county for training purposes, and now that the storage arrangements are known further supplies towards mobilisation stocks will be sent immediately.
