§ 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.
