HC Deb 16 February 1984 vol 54 c286W
41. Mr. Patrick Thompson

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether it is normal practice for the home defence regional and sub-regional headquarters and for local authorities to be involved in North Atlantic Treaty Organisation exercises.

Mr. Hurd

Local authorities are normally invited to participate in the annual warning and fallout reporting exercise. Headquarters of regional government in war are not involved in NATO exercises.
