HC Deb 26 October 1939 vol 352 cc1588-9W
Mr. Windsor

asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware of the dissatisfaction felt by the Local Authority Education Committee at the grant of only 50 per cent. for air-raid precautions; and whether he will now consider raising this amount at least to the percentage grant now made under general air-raid precautions?

Sir J. Anderson

I would refer the hon. Member to the statements which I made on this subject in reply to questions by the hon. Members for Cheltenham (Mr. Lipson) and Farnworth (Mr. Tomlinson) on the 25th May, 8th June and the 13th September.
