§ Mr. Ray Powell
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what system the Government would use to warn every person in the United Kingdom of a nuclear attack ; and if he is satisfied that arrangements in this regard are adequate, efficient and not totally dependent on computers.
§ Mr. Whitelaw
The public warning system operated by the United Kingdom warning and monitoring organisation does not involve computerised procedures. I am considering, as part of my present review of home defence arrangements, what improvements in the system may be called for.
