HC Deb 09 June 1986 vol 99 c84W
Mr. Tony Banks

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland in what way the plans for zone headquarters in Northern Ireland relate to the three war headquarters referred to in the answer of 17 March, Official Report, columns 33 and 34.

Mr. Scott

For civil defence purposes Northern Ireland (region No. 11) is not divided into zones.

The three purpose-built protected centres I referred to in my reply of 17 March will accommodate the regional Government headquarters, a reserve team and four area emergency centres — equivalent to county emergency centres in England and Wales.
