HC Deb 23 October 1984 vol 65 c560W
22. Sir John Biggs-Davison

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what drugs and medical equipment and supplies will be made available for issue to community first-aid posts in a war or other national emergency.

Mr. John Patten

I refer my hon. Friend to the reply I gave to my hon. Friend the Member for Ilford, South (Mr. Thorne) on 15 November 1983, at columns426–27, when I said that the present advice relating to first-aid posts, which in the main would be manned by first aiders, is that they would be supplied with equipment with which staff are familiar and which they have been trained to use.
