HC Deb 23 July 1940 vol 363 c618W
Mr. Touche

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will consider laying down that members of the Local Defence Volunteers on road duty should have a blank cartridge for the first shot so that this could be fired as a warning to motorists?

Mr. Eden

My hon. Friend's suggestion has been considered, but it is not thought practicable to adopt it.
