HC Deb 25 October 1939 vol 352 c1418W
Mr. Mitchell

asked the Minister of Transport whether, in the case of a cautionary air-raid warning only, railway companies are expected to refuse admission of passengers to their stations?

Captain Wallace

I regret to say that on a recent occasion certain underground stations in London were closed on receipt of a cautionary warning signal. The closing was the result of a mistaken interpretation of instructions, and steps have been taken to prevent its recurrence.
