HC Deb 07 March 1939 vol 344 c1920
77. Mr. Parker

asked the Lord Privy Seal whether the Borough of Romford is to be included in the immediate list of those to which equipment and instructions for air-raid shelters are being sent, in view of its very vulnerable position in time of war; and whether he can give any assurance that no means limit will be imposed in connection with the free distribution of the shelters in this and other areas where fares and payments for houses take up such a large part of the weekly income?

The Lord Privy Seal (Sir John Anderson)

The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. As regards the latter part I would refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave on 16th February to a question by my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Herr ford (Sir M. Sueter).
