HC Deb 24 June 1965 vol 714 c241W
42. Mr. Philip Noel-Baker

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what proportion of the £22.7 million allocated to Civil Defence for 1965–66 will be spent on the construction of deep shelters; what persons, or categories of persons, will be entitled to use these shelters in case of enemy nuclear attack; and how many persons the existing shelters will accommodate.

Mr. George Thomas

No money will be spent in 1965–66 on the construction of deep shelters, and none have been constructed since the last war. Seven deep shelters are still available in London, and these have a total capacity of 56,000. No places have been allocated.
