§ 33. Mr. Neil Thorne
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what plans he has to re-establish the home defence executive or a similar body with the powers of a civil defence inspectorate.
§ Mr. Giles Shaw
We have no plans at present; progress by local authorities on implementing the 1983 regulations is being maintained by visits from and meetings and correspondence with the Civil Defence Adviser to the Home Office and other officials. We will keep the need for a formal inspectorate under review.
