HC Deb 04 June 1959 vol 606 c39W
65. Mr. Swingler

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will now state the cost of the civil defence exercise Exodus One in North Staffordshire on 10th May; and what steps were taken to make this exercise realistic.

Mr. R. A. Butler

The exercise cost approximately £725. The assumptions and setting were realistic; and every effort was made, within the compass of a peacetime exercise, to achieve realism in the conduct of the exercise.
