HC Deb 01 April 1941 vol 370 cc862-3W
Mr. Naylor

asked the Home Secretary whether, to meet the new form of explosive incendiary bombs sometimes used by the enemy, and to ensure the use of correct methods in dealing with them, he will issue an additional set of instructions for the guidance of fire-fighting parties?

Mr. H. Morrison

I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer I gave on 18th February to my hon. Friend the Member for East Wolverhampton (Mr. Mander). I then stated that local authorities are kept advised of the most up-to-date methods of dealing with incendiary bombs including those which contain an explosive charge, and I indicated that detailed information and practical training will continue to be given under their auspices. I may add that advice in regard to dealing with explosive incendiary bombs has also been given to the other appropriate authorities mentioned in the Fire Prevention (Business Premises) Order for communication to occupiers of business premises with which they are concerned.

Forward to
