HC Deb 15 April 1937 vol 322 c1202W
Mr. Short

asked the Home Secretary whether the efficiency grants to local police authorities will be increased, having regard to their activities in connection with air raid precautions?

Mr. Lloyd

Police authorities expenditure in the training of police personnel in anti-gas measures, the adaptation of police buildings to meet air raid risks, the engagement of extra staff to deal with air raid precautionary work falling on the police or other similar purposes, will rank for police grant at the usual rate, that is to say, half the approved expenditure.
