HC Deb 21 March 1940 vol 358 c2141W
Mr. Lunn

asked the Home Secretary whether it is intended by the Government to have all gas masks reconstructed, or only a few experimentally?

Sir J. Anderson

I assume that the hon. Member refers to the repair of damaged respirators about which my Department has recently sent a communication to local authorities. It is intended that all respirators found on inspection to be damaged shall be withdrawn and either repaired or replaced.
