HC Deb 28 July 1955 vol 544 c181W
62. Mr. de Freitas

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department when he expects to publish a book in popular form setting out, among other things, what can be done to mitigate the effects of atomic bomb damage, as recommended by the Mabane Committee's Report of March, 1954.

Sir H. Lucas-Tooth

The instruction of the public in the measures to be taken to mitigate the hazards of modern war is one of the most important aspects of civil defence; but the content of that instruction and the form in which it should be given cannot be finally settled until the Government's review of plans for home defence in general on the lines indicated in the "Statement on Defence, 1955" is further advanced.
