HC Deb 30 November 1939 vol 355 c270W
Mr. R. C. Morrison

asked the First Commissioner of Works when it is anticipated that work will be commenced on the provision of adequate air-raid protection for the staff of His Majesty's Inspector of Taxes, at Grand Arcade, Tally Ho Corner, London, N.12, in view of the fact that it is in a vulnerable area; that the total number of staff is 50, and that plans for providing satisfactory shelter were agreed over three months ago?

Mr. Ramsbotham

These premises constitute a commercial building under the Civil Defence Act, and the responsibility for providing air-raid protection for the occupants rests therefore with the landlord who, I am informed, has already begun the work. Some delay was caused by the need to revise the plans originally submitted.
