HC Deb 31 July 1939 vol 350 c1974W
Mr. Groves

asked the Lord Privy Seal whether he has yet decided upon the type and make of respirator applicable and serviceable to men who may in time of emergency be engaged in repair of sewers?

Sir J. Anderson

In so far as these men come within the numbers of repair personnel for whom equipment is being issued to local authorities, they will be provided with general service respirators. This decision was communicated to local authorities last January.
