HC Deb 10 November 1942 vol 383 cc2306-7W
Sir R. Glyn

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power how many officers of his Department and their staffs are posted at the 12 Civil Defence regional offices to be available for consultation with the commissioner but not under his orders, showing each regional staff separately, and indicating the total cost, including buildings requisitioned or hired, fuel, light, etc.?

Major Lloyd George

None of my officers is permanently posted at the office of a Regional Commissioner, but there is close contact between my Regional Controllers and the Regional Commissioners. In the event of an emergency in any particular region, a liaison officer will immediately be posted to the Regional Commissioner's office.
