§ 29. Mr. Garro Jones
asked the Home Secretary what measures he proposes to take to reduce the risk of fire-bombs dropped among mature corn crops in the coming season?
§ 33. General Sir George Jeffreys
asked the Home Secretary whether he has any special measures in contemplation for dealing with the danger of incendiary bombs to crops at harvest time; and whether he is prepared to make arrangements in each district for the co-operation in fire-fighting of this type of military personnel billeted in the neighbourhood?
§ Mr. H. Morrison
The matter to which my hon. Friends refer is being dealt with in collaboration with my right hon. Friend the Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries.
§ Mr. Garro Jones
Is the right hon. Gentleman satisfied that adequate measures have been taken against this risk?
§ Mr. Morrison
We shall take the best possible measures we can. I think my hon. Friend will agree that I ought perhaps not to go into details on a matter which might convey information to the enemy.
§ Mr. Glenvil Hall
Will my right hon. Friend consult with the War Office to see whether in rural areas the Home Guard could help in this matter?
