HC Deb 20 March 1941 vol 370 c304W
Mr. R. Morgan

asked the Home Secretary how many cases have been reported to him of refusal by porters attached to a building to allow firemen to enter to tackle incendiary bombs; and whether prosecutions have been or will be instituted in all such cases.

There, I am informed, the admission of firemen was delayed for only a few minutes while the attendant sought permission to open gates which had been closed to prevent the incursion of unauthorised members of the public. On the facts as reported to me no question arises of instituting legal proceedings against the attendant concerned.
