Number of bomb shelters in Renfrewshire (including Glasgow Airport)

The request was successful.

Jonathan Rainey

Dear Renfrewshire Council,

With increased geopolitical tensions in the world between the west and major superpowers such as Russia and China, how many bomb shelters (including nuclear bomb shelters) are available in the Renfrewshire Council area (including Glasgow Airport) for the public to take shelter in? If a Third World War were to erupt, major airports including Glasgow Airport would become major targets for nuclear bomb attacks.

Yours faithfully,

Jonathan Rainey

FOI, Renfrewshire Council
