HC Deb 08 May 1941 vol 371 c959
23. Captain Cunningham-Reid

asked the Home Secretary whether, in view of the fact that all over the country many names of places have not been properly erased but merely covered over by a board which can be ripped off or by paint which can be removed by petrol and so display the locality, he will give instructions that names of places are to be obliterated in a manner that does not allow of sub sequent disclosure by any means?

The Secretary of State for the Home Department (Mr. Herbert Morrison)

No, Sir.
