HC Deb 27 March 1941 vol 370 c720W
Major Whiteley

asked the Home Secretary whether he is satisfied that the civilian population is sufficiently alive to the danger and effects of mustard and similar liquid gases, particularly as they affect eyesight; and why no issue of eye-shields has been made to civilians?

Mr. H. Morrison

On the general question of anti-gas precautions I would refer my hon. Friend to the statement I have made to-day in reply to a Question by my hon. Friend the Member for Duddes-ton (Mr. Simmonds). As regards the last part of the Question, it was not considered necessary to make a general issue of eye-shields to the public at large.
