Yes, Sir, I am aware of the valuable service which is being given by these men as part-time members of the local rescue parties. But here, as elsewhere, the needs of whole-time industrial work of the greatest urgency must take precedence over part-time Civil Defence duties. Losses must be made good either by volunteers or by the direction, under Regulation 29BA, to part-time duty of men not required or not available for industrial work elsewhere.
