HC Deb 20 July 1939 vol 350 cc730-1W
Mr. Day

asked the Lord Privy Seal whether any decision has now been arrived at by the Government relative to the construction of large underground air-raid shelters in London and the provinces, which could be used to protect the civil population from aerial attack by explosive, incendiary, or poison-gas bombs in times of emergency, and which could be utilised as garages or parking-places to relieve street congestion at other times?

Sir J. Anderson

I would refer the hon. Member to Section 8 of the Civil Defence Act.
