§ Mr. Brewis
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what was the strength 48W of the Civil Defence Corps in Scotland at the end of 1961; and how this compares with previous years.
§ Mr. Maclay
Although many more recruits are still needed in the Civil Defence Corps, the recruiting figures have been climbing steadily upwards since the Corps was established in 1949. In 1961 the figures increased by 2,419 to a total of 39,001 at the end of the year.
