HC Deb 12 June 1939 vol 348 c917W
Miss Ward

asked the Lord Privy Seal whether, in view of the vulnerability of Wallsend-on-Tyne to air-attack, work has commenced on the provision of public shelters or, if not, to what extent plans are in the process of preparation?

Sir J. Anderson

I understand that the County Surveyor of Northumberland is surveying the position in Wallsend in consultation with the borough authorities and that general proposals are being framed and will shortly be put forward for the consideration of my Department.
