Miss Hornsby-Smith

In 1958, sixty -four courses and studies were held at the Civil Defence Staff College, Sunningdale, and were attended by 3,751 students.

Dame Irene Ward

Will my hon. Friend convey to those who are technically and administratively responsible for the college how highly praised they are by those who have attended the course, and will she also convey to those responsible that a great many believe they deserve the highest commendation for the work they do, which is of great service to civil defence?

Miss Hornsby-Smith

I am grateful to my hon. Friend for her kind remarks, which I shall be delighted to pass on. It is rarely that I can so joyfully welcome all that the hon. Lady has said.
