HC Deb 22 April 1964 vol 693 cc178-9W
60. Mr. Carmichael

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he is aware of the danger to health, particularly during the warmer weather, and to children during the school holidays, of the remaining wartime communal air-raid shelters; if he is aware that the work provided by their demolition would be welcomed in Scotland; and if he will take steps to encourage their demolition.

Lady Tweedsmuir

Danger to health is one of the criteria which, under existing arrangements, justify demolition of last war shelters at public expense, and my right hon. Friend is always prepared to consider individual cases submitted by local authorities.
