HC Deb 05 November 1940 vol 365 cc1223-4W
Mr. Groves

asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware that many doctors who have applied, and paid, for steel helmets and civilian duty respirators under the scheme arranged with the Central Medical War Committee are complaining that they have not received delivery or any intimation when delivery will be made; and whether he will investigate this delay and take appropriate steps to cause deliveries of the helmets and respirators to be effected immediately.

Mr. H. Morrison

Orders received by my Department from Secretaries of Local Medical War Committees are met promptly after receipt and I am not aware of any cause for exceptional delay in delivery.
