§ Mr. Arthur Lewis
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will appoint an historian to prepare and issue an historical report of the activities of the National Fire Brigade 900W during the war, showing to what extent life and property were saved and the loss of life incurred by firemen and all other relevant information.
§ Dr. Summerskill
No. This has been done, and I refer my hon. Friend to "Civil Defence" by Terence H. O'Brien, published by Her Majesty's Stationery Office in 1955 as part of the "History of the Second World War: United Kingdom Civil Series."
