HC Deb 25 October 1939 vol 352 c1420W
Major Carver

asked the Home Secretary whether Anderson shelters will be supplied to applicants irrespective of income or, failing that, if a sliding scale can be allowed whereby incomes not exceeding £250 may get them free of charge, and up to £1,000 incomes on or over to be paid for by the applicant?

Sir J. Anderson

As I have already announced, a limited number of the shelters will be made available on payment to householders who are outside the scheme of free distribution. A circular on the arrangements is now being issued to local authorities in the areas in which these shelters will be supplied.
