HC Deb 30 January 1941 vol 368 cc716-7W
Mr. R. Morgan

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether, in view of the number of cases in which important documents concerned with his Department are left in public vehicles, he will consider issuing an order that all those carrying such documents, officers included, shall have them enclosed in an attache case which shall be attached by a chain to their persons as in the case of bank messengers?

Captain Balfour

I regret that I am unable to adopt the procedure suggested by my hon. Friend, which is open to the objection that it would draw attention to the fact that public documents of an important nature were being carried.
