HC Deb 20 April 1939 vol 346 c470
6. Mr. Leonard

asked the Minister of Labour whether he has considered staff representations regarding the need for providing anti-aircraft shelter for staff and applicants at the different Employment Exchanges; whether such shelter has been provided in any cases, and, if so, at which exchanges; and what further action he intends to take at the non-provided exchanges to give effect to the protective shelter policy which is being recommended to private employers of labour?

Mr. E. Brown

The question of air-raid precautions at Employment Exchanges has been discussed with the staff side of the Departmental Whitley Council on various occasions, and close touch with them is being maintained. A survey by the Office of Works of all exchanges in vulnerable areas is in active progress and work is well in hand in a number of places. The work of providing protection at all exchanges in vulnerable areas will be pushed forward as rapidly as possible.
