HC Deb 28 July 1982 vol 28 cc555-6W
Miss Richardson

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what emergency planning initiatives his Department is engaged in; and with whom.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

We are concerned with emergency planning which involves the National Health Service, the personal social services and the social security organisation, including plans for emergencies arising from industrial strife, natural disasters, major accidents and the provision of a health service in wartime. Plans are made consulting, as appropriate, other Government Departments, health and local authorities, the Post Office and voluntary organisations.
