HC Deb 20 April 1939 vol 346 c470
63. Mr. Frankel

asked the Lord Privy Seal whether he is in a position to state the number of householders eligible to receive an Anderson shelter whose premises do not permit of the erection of such a shelter; and what alternative accommodation he proposes to provide?

The Lord Privy Seal (Sir John Anderson)

I am not in a position to give the information asked for in the first part of the question. As regards other forms of householder's shelter, directions for the strengthening of basements are about to be issued, and designs for surface shelters in connection with private houses are in an advanced state of preparation.

Mr. Frankel

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that one of the difficulties of recruiting for Civil Defence is that millions of people in this country are being offered no possibility of security at all?
