HC Deb 12 November 1940 vol 365 cc1599-600W
Sir R. Gower

asked the Home Secretary whether his attention has been called to the recommendation by the Common Serjeant that instructions should be given to air-raid precautions workers and others as to what they should do with articles, whether valuable or otherwise, found in homes damaged in air raids; whether such instructions have been given; and, if so, what they are?

Mr. H. Morrison

I am sending the hon. Member a copy of a circular letter on the subject addressed to local authorities in the London Region. Corresponding instructions to their personnel will no doubt have been issued by authorities elsewhere to accord with local organisation, where such guidance is necessary. The matter is, however, one for local guidance.
