HC Deb 01 May 1952 vol 499 c109W
83. Mr. Ian Harvey

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether the prototype Civil Defence mobile column has now been established; and what initial training it has carried out.

Sir D. Maxwell Fyfe

I am in urgent consultation with my right hon. Friend the Minister of Works about the necessary adaptation of the premises acquired at Epsom for the experimental mobile column, and I regret that I am not yet in a position to say when this will be completed. Meanwhile, good progress is being made with the preparation of the syllabus of training and experiments.
