HC Deb 11 July 1985 vol 82 c504W
Mr. Tony Banks

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what grants are, or have been, paid to any police authority for home defence other than civil defence as defined in the Civil Defence Act 1984; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Giles Shaw

None. Only the home defence activities which fall within the definition of civil defence in the Civil Defence Act 1984 are eligible for grant aid.
