§ 28. Mr. R. C. Morrison
asked the Home Secretary whether he has considered the 577 copy sent to him of a resolution passed by the municipal delegates attending the British fire-week conference at Brighton requesting legislation to compel insurance companies to contribute to the cost of fire brigades; and what action he proposes to take?
§ Sir S. Hoare
The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. The whole matter was considered when the Fire Brigades Bill was before Parliament, and the Government do not contemplate any further action.
