§ 97. Mr. G. Williams
asked the Secretary of State for War if he will arrange to have special appeals made through the British Broadcasting Corporation to encourage recruits into the Home Guard, in the same way as those made on behalf of the Services and Civil Defence.
§ Mr. J. R. H. Hutchison
My right hon. Friend well knows the value of broadcasts in recruiting. The broadcast of the late Chief of the Imperial General Staff on the formation of the Home Guard carried great weight. He is contemplating further broadcasts of a 159W similar nature. In addition, announcements on the Home Guard are now being included from time to time in the official announcements period.
