No special force is being raised in Bristol. As my hon. Friend will be aware, power has been taken to meet the recent expansion of the Home Guard and the needs of the Civil Defence services arising from the release of whole-time personnel to industry by compulsory direction to part-time service. Directions are being given in Bristol and elsewhere by the local officers of the Ministry of Labour and National Service on requisitions received from the Home Guard authorities and the local authorities respectively.
