HC Deb 22 July 1943 vol 391 c1055
18. Mr. Messer

asked the Home Secretary whether it is obligatory for part-time wardens to sign the log book reporting every entrance and exit to and from the wardens post in addition to signing the duty register?

Mr. H. Morrison

This is a matter which is left to the discretion of the local authority responsible for the wardens' service. In one instance in which a log book was instituted it had the salutary result of preventing unjustifiable claims for subsistence allowances, but so far I have not found it necessary to require this method to be standardised.

Mr. Messer

So I take it that where there is an arrangement, that would prevent the possibility of any difficulty arising if it is left to the local Civil Defence committee?
