HC Deb 15 July 1941 vol 373 cc484-5W
Mr. White

asked the Home Secretary whether plans for fire-watching for crops during harvesting have been completed?

Miss Wilkinson

Comprehensive instructions on this subject have been issued to Regional Commissioners; and a leaflet, prepared in conjunction with the Ministry of Agriculture, and containing full guid- ance regarding the action which should be taken to deal with this risk is being issued very shortly to all farmers in the corn-growing areas.
