HC Deb 09 March 1939 vol 344 c2331
42. Dr. Edith Summerskill

asked the Minister of Health whether arrangements have yet been made in the event of hostilities for the Governmental control of medical supplies and distribution to those areas which will be most vulnerable to attack from the air?

Mr. Elliot

Yes, Sir. Reserves of medical supplies for the treatment of air-raid casualties are being purchased in bulk by the Government and will be distributed for storage, mainly at hospitals, in the area of each scheme-making authority.
