HC Deb 19 April 1951 vol 486 c1987
18. Mr. Watkinson

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will now provide more equipment and facilities for use in the training of Civil Defence volunteers.

The Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department (Mr. Geoffrey de Freitas)

Adequate supplies of training equipment have been issued to local authorities, but if the hon. Member has any particular items of equipment or training facilities in mind and will let me know, I shall be glad to look into the matter.

Mr. Watkinson

Are adequate supplies available of the new devices and techniques which will be necessary for training, such as, for example, radiation detectors?

Mr. de Freitas

Not long ago I answered a Question on that point. I will communicate with the hon. Member and bring that information up to date.
