HC Deb 10 December 1987 vol 124 c234W
Mr. Cohen

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make a statement on the role of local authorities in the major home defence exercises planned for September-October 1988.

Mr. Douglas Hogg

We have indicated to local authorities our belief that participation should be limited to the provision of guidance by county emergency planning officers on any local authority matters which may arise.
