HC Deb 30 November 1939 vol 355 cc276-7W
Mr. Groves

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that the military huts in the course of erection at South Benfleet, Essex, have light shining roofs, which contravene the whole principles of a black-out; and whether, as the residents of that district feel somewhat alarmed, he will see that these roofs arc blacked?

Mr. Hore-Belisha

Instructions have already been issued for such roofs to be suitably painted.
