§ 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?
