HC Deb 14 July 1982 vol 27 c395W
Mr. Pawsey

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what progress has been made in the planning of Exercise Hard Rock; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Whitelaw

I am not satisfied with the state of local planning for Exercise Hard Rock and I have decided that it should be postponed. I am considering urgently with my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Scotland the need to amend the planning regulations made under the Civil Defence Act 1948.
