HC Deb 13 June 1952 vol 502 cc55-6W
Dr. Broughton

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what steps he is taking to ensure that Civil Defence workers will be competent to administer first aid to the injured.

Sir D. Maxwell Fyfe

Full first aid training, on a syllabus prepared in consultation with the Ministry of Health, is given to all members of the Ambulance and Rescue Sections and to an appropriate proportion of members of the Warden and Welfare Sections of the Civil Defence Corps. Other members of the Corps receive a simpler form of basic first aid training.
