asked the Lord Privy Seal whether he is aware that unsuitable material for screening purposes is being sold in different parts of the country; and whether he will endeavour to popularise the qualities which such materials should possess to be of real use for the object required?
§ Sir J. Anderson
My attention has not previously been called to the sale of unsuitable materials for screening purposes. The qualities required of such materials are described in general terms in a pamphlet recently issued by my Department on "War-time Lighting Restrictions for Industrial and Commercial Premises." I am sending my hon. Friend a copy. A similar description is also included in a leaflet which is shortly to be distributed to all householders throughout the country.
