HC Deb 01 March 1955 vol 537 c250W
91. Mr. Emrys Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what Civil Defence exercises he proposes to carry out in Prestwick and the neighbour hood, so that Civil Defence personnel can be informed of what will be required of them in the event of an atomic explosion over the aerodrome.

Mr. J. Stuart
