HC Deb 22 August 1945 vol 413 cc625-6W
Sir J. Lucas

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty if his attention has been called to the fact that the use of air-raid sirens instead of bolls as time signals in Ports- mouth Dockyard is causing great annoyance and distress to the citizens; and if he will arrange for hooters of some other note to be installed instead.

Mr. Alexander

Yes, Sir. Factory hooters will be used instead as soon as they can be obtained.
