The real issue was that they were not told what they were volunteering for and thought it was some sort of tear gas test for which they got paid a few bob - IIRC there were National Servicemen involved and it was nothing to do with protection against terrorism. At the time the UK was considering building up stocks of chemical weapons as a deterrent to a Soviet use of the same.
