HC Deb 08 October 1942 vol 383 cc1376-7W
Mr. Rostron Duckworth

asked the Home Secretary whether Civil Defence workers have to register for fire-watching duties?

Mr. H. Morrison

Civil Defence workers are not exempt from registration under the Compulsory Enrolment Order, if they are within the prescribed age limits and reside in areas to which that Order applies. In certain circumstances they may, however, after registration be exempt from enrolment for fire-guard duties.
