HC Deb 19 May 1947 vol 437 cc223-4W
Mr. Mitchison

asked the Secretary of State for War when he proposes to release 143324O1 Private Bird, R.A.M.C., now

them off; and if he will take steps to secure that the council fulfils its duty to abate this serious public nuisance.

Mr. Oliver

My right hon. Friend has had inquiries made but these do not support the suggestion of failure on the part of the London County Council to take reasonable steps in the interests of safety. Nevertheless, additional precautionary measures are being adopted. Further tenders are being invited for the demolition of the shelters.
