§ Mr. Whitney
Stocks of medical and domestic equipment are held in five depots managed by Crown Suppliers. Consideration is currently being given to the size of the stocks and ways and means of dispersal. Stocks of analgesics are held by some health authorities. These could form part of the provision for community first aid posts.
The question of stocks of drugs, pharmaceuticals, and first aid dressings required for the management of casualties in war is a complex one, and officials in a working group are examining this separately.
