HC Deb 22 March 1951 vol 485 c321W
72. Mr. C. I. Orr-Ewing

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will make use of the amateur transmitting stations in this country for the purposes of communications for Civil Defence on the lines recently agreed in the United States of America.

Mr. de Freitas

The use of the radio for Civil Defence purposes is being studied, but I cannot at present say what use, if any, would be made of amateur transmitting stations.
