HC Deb 29 June 1925 vol 185 cc2052-4W
Lieut.-Colonel HENDERSON

asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware that the serious fire which occurred at Balham early on 23rd June originated in a timber yard; that other serious fires, also originating in timber yards, have occurred since the Royal Commission on fire prevention reported in 1923; and whether, under these circumstances, he is prepared to introduce legislation to carry out the Royal Commission's recommendations in regard to the storage of timber?


I am aware that there have been a number of fires which originated in timber yards. There is no immediate possibility of legislation, but the matter is not being overlooked.
