HC Deb 18 May 1939 vol 347 c1642W
Mr. White

asked the Lord Privy Seal whether he has established or proposes to set up any organisation to determine the order of priority of issue of the decontamination suits to the Civil Defence organisations of essential industries?

Sir J. Anderson

It has been found impracticable to undertake the supply of protective clothing centrally; but I hope to be able to make arrangements with the manufacturers to give priority of supply to firms in the areas specified for the purposes of Part III of the Civil Defence Bill.
