HC Deb 27 January 1944 vol 396 c875W
Sir W. Smiles

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, in view of the large number of persons directed into part-time service with the N.F.S. during the last 12 months, what steps have been taken to release proportionate whole-time male personnel.

Mr. H. Morrison

The man-power requirements of the National Fire Service, both full-time and part-time, are kept constantly under review in the light of the changing war situation. It would not be in the national interest to publish detailed information as to the adjustments in strength made as the result of these reviews.
