HC Deb 15 June 1955 vol 542 c18W
Mr. Ian Harvey

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is yet able to make a statement upon the Government's plans for setting up a national monitoring organisation to give warning and to measure radio-activity in the event of air attack on the United Kingdom.

Major Lloyd-George

Yes. I am glad to be able to inform the House that arrangements are being made for the Royal Observer Corps, in conjunction with the Air Raid Warning Organisation, to undertake this important new function in addition to their existing duties.
