HC Deb 27 July 1950 vol 478 cc673-4
43. Mr. Peter Smithers

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many staff are engaged full-time in the organisation of Civil Defence in the county of Hampshire.

Mr. Ede

I understand that in the geographical county eight full-time appointments of Civil Defence officer and instructor have been made.

Mr. Smithers

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that local authorities are finding great difficulty in dealing with the large number of circulars which are at present coming to them, and will he look into this matter and see whether he can assist them further?

Mr. Ede

I do not think that that has very much to do with this Question.
