§ 42. Mr. Ian Harvey
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department on how many occasions Members of Parliament have been invited by his Department to visit Civil Defence establishments or to attend Civil Defence exercises since 1st May, 1955.
§ Major Lloyd-George
No suitable occasion has arisen since 1st May, 1955, for extending a formal invitation to Members of Parliament to visit the Civil Defence Staff College or any of the Civil Defence schools. I am, however, always happy to make the necessary arrangements for Members who wish to visit any of the Home Office Civil Defence establishments. Most of the Civil Defence exercises that have taken place during this period have been arranged by local authorities.
