asked the Home Secretary whether, following the publication of the leaflet "Plans for Civilian Action in Invasion," it is proposed to instruct women who are anxious to use their spare time for the purpose of learning how to be of the maximum use in the event of an invasion?
Is the hon. Lady aware that there is no provision for the instruction of women in the country except that given by the Women's Home Defence, and further that there are now 200 Women's Home Defence units in large towns, universities and Government Departments, and does she not think it is time the Government took some official action?
I do not think the hon. Lady is correct in saying that there is only one kind of training in this country. As a matter of fact, my right hon. Friend arranges that wherever it is possible a woman shall sit on each of these invasion committees.
