HC Deb 23 February 1939 vol 344 c588W
Mr. Edwards

asked the Minister of Health whether he can give his reasons for choosing districts adjacent to Middles rough for evacuating Leeds in his air-raid precautions scheme?

Mr. Elliot

The only area adjoining Middlesbrough which has been scheduled as a reception area for the purpose of the Government evacuation scheme is Stonefly Rural District. It is not proposed to evacuate persons from Leeds to the district. It may be that the hon. Member has other regions in mind and if so I should be glad if he would inform me further.
