HC Deb 13 December 1993 vol 234 cc435-6W
Mr. Tipping

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what plans he has to introduce a national public alert system.

Mr. Peter Lloyd

It was announced on 12 November 1992 that the obsolescent national siren warning system was to be closed down and that future national arrangements for warning the public would use radio and television broadcasts. Work is in hand on the new system.
