§ Mr. Pawsey
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, pursuant to his reply to the hon. Member for Rugby on 19 January, how many times regulation 6 of the Civil Defence (Planning) Regulations 1974 has been invoked; on what occasions; and with what results.
§ Mr. Mayhew
None. The Government's policy has been to assist local authorities with advice, money and encouragement rather than to invoke the powers available.
