HC Deb 27 June 1940 vol 362 c609W
Sir R. Gower

asked the Home Secretary what steps he is taking to see that all public air-raid shelters are opened at all times during the day and night, and not padlocked at night?

Sir J. Anderson

It is for the local authorities to ensure that public air-raid shelters are available for occupation when need arises and I have no reason for thinking that they are not in fact so available.
