§ Mr. Leonard
asked the Lord Privy Seal whether it is the intention of the Government to make provision whereby proprietors of tenement property in Scotland must provide air-raid shelters where such shelters are demanded by more than 50 per cent of the tenants; and what steps it is proposed to take to ensure that proprietors and trusts who have no available funds, are enabled to fulfil their statutory duties?
§ Sir J. Anderson
When Clause 30 of the Civil Defence Bill was under discussion at the Report stage last week, I expressed the view that there might be need for some amendment of the Clause in another place, where the Bill is now being considered. The hon. Member will appreciate that I am not in a position at present to give a definite reply to his question.
