§ Major Procter
asked the Home Secretary under what circumstances Civil Defence workers are expected to attend instructional lectures in off-day periods; and whether the regulations apply to both voluntary and paid workers?
§ Miss Wilkinson
So far as possible, and if necessary by temporary rearrangement of rotas, local authorities should arrange for instructional lectures for whole-time members of the Civil Defence Services to be held within their normal duty hours. The same principle applies as regards part-time members; time spent by them in attending lectures should count in computing duty obligations.
