HC Deb 18 February 1954 vol 523 c225W
61. Mr. Albu

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what proportion of units in the various Civil Defence services are fully equipped with radio-active measuring equipment for training purposes.

Sir D. Maxwell Fyfe

The issue to corps authorities of radiac equipment, except for the training version of the portable dose-rate meter, for the local training of members of all the Civil Defence and allied services was started in the autumn of 1952 and completed by the middle of last year, except in the case of five authorities who have not yet made the necessary arrangements for storage.
