§ 8. Mr. Mander
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will give an assurance that adequate measures have been taken to secure the protection, in all circumstances, of public utility concerns, such as electricity, water and gas undertakings either by Regular Army contingents or Local Defence Volunteers?
§ 5. Mr. Parker
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will have important trains running in areas liable to air-raids armed with anti-aircraft guns?
§ 25. Mr. Gledhill
asked the Secretary of State for War whether adequate arrangements have now been made for guarding power stations, waterworks and other important local services?
§ Mr. Eden
I think my hon. Friends will agree that it would be very undesirable for me to make public statements about details of our defence schemes, and I hope they will accept my assurance that our plans include all protective measures that are considered practicable and make the best use of our resources.
§ Mr. Mander
Is my hon. Friend aware that not everybody is quite satisfied about this, and will he give me an opportunity of making private representations?
§ Sir H. Williams
Can my right hon. Friend say whether that is true of the Purley and Coulsdon Urban District Council, which was not co-operating in the slightest degree last Friday?
