§ 68. Mr. H. Hynd
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many volunteers have now joined the various sections of the Civil Defence Corps; and how many are still needed.
§ Major Lloyd-George
The table given below shows the present provisional peace-time establishment and the number enrolled in each section of the Civil Defence Corps in England and Wales on 30th September last. More recruits are needed in all sections, but I cannot say how many more because the present peace-time establishments are necessarily provisional.
