HC Deb 10 March 1988 vol 129 c285W
Mr. Simon Coombs

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he is satisfied with the provisions for civil defence in Swindon; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. John Patten

Responsibility for civil defence planning rests with county councils which are assisted by district councils. We are satisfied that Wiltshire county council, and the district councils within the county, are making good progress towards meeting their statutory obligations.
