§ 28. Mr. Thorne
asked the Home Secretary whether any local authority has the power to have any other method than the siren in the case of an air-raid?
§ Mr. H. Morrison
No, Sir. No public alarm other than the siren may be sounded without my specific authority; but certain towns on or near the South and East coasts which are liable to hit and run raids have been permitted to sound a local alarm signal publicly in addition to the national warning sounded on the siren.
§ Mr. Morrison
It is obviously most undesirable that I should answer questions about particular places in public.
