HC Deb 08 August 1940 vol 364 c414
70. Commander King-Hall

asked the Home Secretary whether he proposes to take any further steps to reinforce his recent appeal to members of the public that they should wear their gas masks for a quarter of an hour each week?

Sir J. Anderson

I propose to avail myself of suitable means of reminding the public of the recommendation which I recently made on this subject, and I hope that hon. Members will give it their support.

Mr. Noel-Baker

Will the recommendation to the public cover all the cases of recent air attacks by the enemy, and will the right hon. Gentleman have it broadcast?

Sir J. Anderson

I shall consider that. I thought it was best to serve up the advice in small doses at a time.
