§ Mr. Douglas Hogg
Civil defence planning under the Civil Defence Act 1948 relates to measures to mitigate the effect of any hostile attack by a foreign power, whatever form it may take. Separate costings for nuclear aspects are not made.
In London, the principal responsibility for civil defence planning rests with the London Fire and Civil Defence Authority, whose preliminary estimate for civil defence expenditure as a whole for 1987–88 was 1.5 million. Total programmed expenditure on civil defence in the United Kingdom during 1987–88 is £105 million.
