HC Deb 24 February 1966 vol 725 c626
Q10. Mr. William Hamilton

asked the Prime Minister what steps he is taking to ensure better co-ordination between the Ministry of Defence and the Home Office in the production of pamphlets and leaflets concerning instructions to civilians in the event of nuclear attack on Great Britain.

Mr. George Brown

I have been asked to reply.

None, Sir. My right hon. Friend is satisfied with the existing arrangements.

Mr. Hamilton

He should not be. Has my right hon. Friend seen the film "The War Game"? Has he been one of the chosen few who have seen it? If he has, how can he reconcile the silly statements produced from official pamphlets and documents with the reality of what a nuclear war might be? If he has seen the film, will my right hon. Friend take steps either to modify the pamphlets or to withdraw them?

Mr. Brown

The answer to the first part of that question is that I will convey that observation to my right hon. Friend. The answer to the second part is that I have not seen the film. Therefore, the third part of the question does not arise.
