HC Deb 27 February 1939 vol 344 c909
75. Mr. Day

asked the Lord Privy Seal particulars of the manner in which his Department have arranged for and equipped shelters capable of resisting blast and splinters from high-explosive bombs as a permanent measure of precaution?

Captain Dugdale (Lord of the Treasury)

I have been asked to reply. The Government's policy in regard to the provision of air-raid shelters proof against blast, splinter and the fall of debris was fully explained in the statement made by my right hon. Friend the Lord Privy Seal on 21st December, to which I would refer the hon. Member. The shelters to be pro vided under that policy are regarded as a permanent measure of protection.

Mr. Day

Will any first-aid posts be provided in connection with these shelters?

Captain Dugdale

I have no doubt that that matter will be dealt with in the course of the Debate on the subject which is to take place during this week.
