HC Deb 08 March 1955 vol 538 c32W
93. Mr. Swingler

asked the Secretary of State for War when the training of soldiers in Civil Defence duties will commence; who will be responsible for the instruction; and how many hours of training time, per week, will be devoted to the subject.

Mr. F. Maclean

Men in the Regular and Reserve Armies already receive from unit instructors some training in Civil Defence subjects. My right hon. Friend is now examining what further arrangements may be necessary to implement the policy announced in paragraph 106 of the Defence White Paper.
