HC Deb 01 December 1965 vol 721 c211W
Mr. Hooson

asked the Secretary of State for Defence, what steps he is taking to ensure the proper working of the Fylingdales Early Warning Station throughout this winter.

Mr. Millan

The same steps are being taken that have ensured in the past that the effective operation of the station has never been interrupted by bad weather. They include arrangements made, in full co-operation with the local authorities, to keep the roads open in all but the worst conditions, as well as arrangements for enough staff to be accommodated at the station to keep it in operation even if it should become completely isolated for a period.
