I am glad to state that, after consultation with the trades union representatives on the Joint Consultative Committee, alterations in the present scheme are being made which, so far as conditions and circumstances are comparable, will go far to assimilate the treatment of persons employed on a whole-time basis in the National Fire Service and the Local Authority Civil Defence (General) Services to those of sick or injured members of the Armed Forces of the Crown. Details of the new scheme, which is necessarily complicated, will be given in a leaflet, now in course of preparation, for which I am arranging a sufficient circulation to ensure that whole-time members of the Civil Defence Services are informed of the further improvements of the original conditions of service. The arrangements will also apply to whole-time Police Auxiliaries.

Will the leaflet be published in the near future?
