HC Deb 08 March 1939 vol 344 cc2159-60W
Mr. Parker

asked the Minister of Health when he will be able to reach a decision about the revision of the list of neutral areas so as to include Dagenham as an evacuation area, in view of its dangerous position on the route to London?

Mr. Elliot

As I announced in the Debate on the 2nd March, I am proposing to consider all the representations made to me by individual local authorities on the subject of their classification when the survey of accommodation is complete. I hope that the survey will be substantially complete by about the middle of this month but the assessment of its results and of the possibilities for review which it may present may take some little time.
