Progressive Conservative

Mr. G. R. Pearkes (Esquimalt-Saanich):

May I ask a supplementary question of the Minister of National Health and Welfare? Was not Field Marshal Montgomery referring to the protection from the fall-out which would be afforded in basements rather than the actual bursting of the bomb which might fall? Have the officials of the civil defence branch not been advocating the use of basements as protection against the fallout?
