HC Deb 04 February 1942 vol 377 c1199W
Dr. Morgan

asked the Home Secretary why the so far unused tube station, the "Old Bull and Bush" has not yet been used as an underground shelter; whether it is still a store for silencing-screens for tube tunnels; and whether it is proposed to utilise this station as a shelter in the near fuure?

Mr. H. Morrison

There is no access to this station from the surface and it could not safely or conveniently be used as an air raid shelter unless a shaft were sunk to give such access and to povide means of sewage disposal. The works involved would necessitate a considerable expenditure of labour, materials and money and would, it is estimated, take at least a year to complete. Having regard to the general shelter position in London, I do not consider that it would be right to undertake this work. The station is being used by the London Passenger Transport Board for storage purposes.
