HC Deb 26 June 1940 vol 362 cc459-60W
Sir A. Baillie

asked the Home Secretary whether he can state the result of any testing of Anderson steel shelters in connection with recent air raids?

Sir J. Anderson

I should not wish to build too much upon the limited but favourable experience which we have had as yet; it is certainly the case that nothing has occurred to shake the confidence which I place in properly erected and covered steel shelters.

Mr. Brooke

asked the Home Secretary whether a person who enters into occupation of a dwelling in a vulnerable area which is not provided with household shelter accommodation is entitled to have such shelter accommodation provided free by the local authority, if he is within the categories of persons originally entitled to free provision of Anderson steel shelters?

Sir J. Anderson

The answer is in the affirmative.
