HC Deb 06 February 1964 vol 688 c215W
Mr. Stonehouse

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what is his policy with regard to the erection of warning sirens in residential areas.

Mr. Woodhouse

Sirens are situated to give effective warning to the population in emergency. Wherever practicable they are mounted on buildings, but where there is no suitable building in the vicinity of siren sites they are erected on poles or lattice masts.
