HC Deb 20 July 1939 vol 350 cc727-8W
Captain Plugge

asked the Lord Privy Seal whether, in view of the provisions of the Civil Defence Act, he proposes to ask for quarterly statements from different local authorities in the country as to the extent to which they are carrying out the instructions of this Measure?

Sir J. Anderson

I shall certainly take steps to keep myself informed of the progress made in the administration of the Act, but I cannot at this stage say at what intervals it will be necessary to call for formal reports. The Regional Officers of the Department will be in constant touch with the local authorities.
