HC Deb 06 June 1939 vol 348 c204
38. Mr. Brooke

asked the Minister of Health whether any cripples or invalids, other than blind people and expectant mothers, are to be regarded as coming within the priority class of evacuees; and, if not, whether he can give definite public guidance to such persons as to their best and safest course in the event of an emergency?

Mr. Bernays

Yes, Sir. Adult cripples, so far as their removal is feasible, are included among the priority classes for the purposes of the Government evacuation scheme.
