§ Mr. Michael Brown
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what guidelines his Department issues to local authorities regarding bomb shelters.
§ Mr. Whitelaw
The principal guidance is to be found in Home Office circular No. ES 1/1976 a copy of which is in the Library of the House. However, the current review of home defence arrangements covers all aspects of public protection, including shelter. I will make an announcement on the conclusions of the review as soon as possible.
