HC Deb 19 June 1941 vol 372 c845W
Mr. Gallacher

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Transport whether motormen employed on the London underground railways are expected to undertake fire-watching duties during those weeks when they sign on for their railway duties at hours between 4.30 and 7.30 a.m., and are men who complete late duty during an air-raid expected to undertake fire-watching at the completion of such duty; and whether he will grant locomotive engineers and firemen, and electric train motormen, as well as guards, exemption from any schemes of compulsory fire-watching?

Colonel Llewellin

I am making inquiries, and will communicate with the hon. Member as soon as possible.
