§ 16. Sir Stanley Reed
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, in view of the national emergency and the embarrassment to the 577 military caused by the public using roads and streets, he will consider issuing orders banning all, save the military and auxiliary services, from all thoroughfares during air raids, the landing of troops from aeroplanes, and any form of invasion?
§ The Secretary of State for the Home Department (Sir John Anderson)
All practicable steps are being taken to ensure that in the event of hostile attack the movement of troops is not impeded by unnecessary traffic on the roads.
