HC Deb 12 November 1940 vol 365 c1599W
Mr. Crowder

asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware of the number of young children who use the tube shelters, and who take up their position to enter soon after 10 a.m., thus spending 20 out of the 24 hours of each day in taking cover; and whether he will arrange for a census of these children and inquire whether they have any education or home life?

Mr. H. Morrison

I hope that as the system of admission by ticket spreads, this development, which I join with my hon. Friend in deploring, will disappear.
