HC Deb 26 July 1915 vol 73 c1941
26. Mr. COWAN

asked the Home Secretary what steps, if any, the London County Council has taken, or proposes to take, to enforce the provision by the proprietors of residential flats and other similar inhabited buildings unprovided with safety staircases of adequate means of egress in case of fires due to incendiary bombs or other causes; and whether, in the event of the county council's powers being insufficient to enable it to insist upon such provision being made, he will consider the advisability of introducing legislation to confer such further powers as may be necessary for this purpose?


I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply which I gave him to the same question on 28th June. The powers of the council are adequate.
