asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department why the document "Protect and Survive" lodged in the Library is not available to the public; why it may not be photographed or removed; how many copies are in circulation; and by whom they are held.

The reasons for its limited availability to date are given in the Home Office circular ES 9/76 lodged with the booklet. A total of 2,250 copies of the booklet were printed; most of these were distributed to Government Departments, local authorities, chief constables and chief fire officers. The question of making the booklet more widely available is one of the matters being examined in the current review of home defence arrangements.
