HC Deb 22 July 1964 vol 699 c477
33. Mrs. Hart

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what steps he has taken to ensure that every new subsidised house has fireplace fittings for the fixture of fireguards, in view of the evidence in the recent British Medical Association Survey on Accidents in the Home that in 65 per cent. of cases of burns due to fire, fixed fireguards were not in use.

Mr. G. Campbell

The Building Standards (Scotland) Regulations which are now in force require open fireplaces in all new residential buildings in Scotland to have fireguard fittings.
