HC Deb 18 January 1940 vol 356 cc205-6
33. Mr. Vyvyan Adams

asked the Home Secretary whether he will adopt a different air-raid warning equal in volume to the present warning but less depressing in tone?

Sir J. Anderson

No, Sir. The present arrangements were settled after much experiment, and to alter them now would be neither practicable nor, I think, desirable.

Viscountess Astor

Does my right hon. Friend not think that if the only thing that depresses the people who stay at home is the air-raid warning they are doing very well?
