HC Deb 25 May 1943 vol 389 c1399
30. Major Lloyd

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department the date on which it is expected that the new Order respecting the liability of women for fire-watching duties will be issued?

The Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department (Mr. Peake)

The recent establishment of close working arrangements between the Fire Guard Service and the National Fire Service has made it necessary to introduce certain changes in the draft Orders. My right hon. Friend hopes, however, that he will be able to sign the Orders next month.
