HC Deb 18 June 1940 vol 362 cc16-7
26. Mr. De la Bère

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will issue instructions to the public advising those who are afflicted with deafness of the danger of approaching military positions by day, and more especially towards dusk, and further instruct them to wear an armlet indicating that they are hard of hearing, or to be accompanied by someone whose hearing is not defective?

Mr. Eden

Warnings on this subject have been published both in the Press and by broadcast. An armlet would be capable of misuse.

Mr. De la Bère

Would my right hon. Friend ask the B.B.C. once again to remind some of these people?
