§ Mr. D. Somerville
asked the Home Secretary whether he can provide a list of the number of towns in the country with a population of over 100,000 that 1836W have made adequate arrangements in connection with air-raid precautions?
§ Mr. Lloyd
I would refer the hon. Member to my reply to the question addressed to me by the hon. and gallant Member for Central Wandsworth (Colonel Nathan) on 24th February. As no general precautions schemes in accordance with the terms of the Act and of the Regulations have yet been formally submitted, I am not in a position to say that any town has made adequate arrangements in connection with air-raid precautions. As indicated in that reply, however, a substantial amount of work has already been done in organisation in earmarking of buildings and in recruiting and training personnel.
