HC Deb 25 March 1959 vol 602 c139W
103. Mr. Malcolm MacMillan

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department to what extent he will share the additional cost to certain local authorities arising from the special civil defence and other services made necessary by the establishment of guided-missile bases in their areas.

Mr. R. A. Butler

All local authorities, wherever situated, on whom functions have been conferred under the Civil Defence Act, 1948, receive grants on approved expenditure in accordance with Regulations made under the Act. Part of this expenditure is grant aided at a rate of 75 per cent. and part fully reimbursed. I am not clear what other services the hon. Member has in mind.
