§ Sir I. Albery
asked the Lord Privy Seal whether he can say approximately what percentage of those entitled to receive Anderson steel shelters have refused them; and what action, if any, it is proposed to take?
§ Sir J. Anderson:
No, Sir. There is still a large unsatisfied demand for these shelters on the part of people living in vulnerable areas; and, so long as that is the case, I see no reason to take any action as regards the small minority who have declined for one reason or another to avail themselves of this opportunity to provide themselves with shelter free of cost.
§ Mr. E. J. Williams
asked the Lord Privy Seal whether delivery of shelters 1508W has commenced in the Maesteg, Ogmore and Garw, Bridgend and Penybont local government areas; and what will be the approximate date when the needs are met?
§ Sir J. Anderson
Of the districts mentioned by the hon. Member, Bridgend is the only one which has been included among the areas to which these shelters are being supplied. Distribution will be extended to Bridgend as further supplies of the shelters become available, but I cannot say precisely when it may become possible to begin delivery there.
