HC Deb 13 December 1939 vol 355 cc1177-8
22. Lieut.-Colonel Sir Thomas Moore

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether the conditions of the men attending to the balloon barrages are regarded as satisfactory, especially in respect of clothing and comfort?

Sir K. Wood

There has been delay in the provision of certain articles of clothing due to the rapid expansion in the numbers of personnel. This also caused, at the outset, certain difficulties in regard to accommodation. But I am advised that the situation in both respects is now generally satisfactory.
