HC Deb 30 January 1941 vol 368 cc689-90W
Sir R. Gower

asked the Home Secretary how many gas helmets for babies have so far been issued by his Department; what arrangements have been made to instruct parents in the use of these helmets; and whether he is satisfied that these arrangements are adequate?

Mr. H. Morrison

My Department has issued about 1,250,000 anti-gas helmets for babies. Each helmet is accompanied by a printed leaflet of instructions and the use of the helmet is normally demonstrated by the warden when he issues it. I have no information to suggest that the arrangements are inadequate.
