HC Deb 24 October 1961 vol 646 c47W
Mr. Emrys Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland who is now the designated burial officer for the West of Scotland under his Civil Defence Scheme; what is the nature of his duties; and what recent instructions have been given him.

Mr. Maclay

There is no such officer for the West of Scotland as a whole, but the local authorities concerned have each designated one of their officers to be responsible for planning emergency burial arrangements.
