HC Deb 06 April 1948 vol 449 c4W
Mr. W. Morrison

asked the Minister of Health whether, with the object of preventing a recurrence of the fire which recently destroyed two Airey houses in the Cheltenham rural district, caused by the use of inflammable insulating material on the instructions of his Department, he will circulate to all local authorities erecting these houses particulars of the occurrence and prohibit the further use of this material as insulation between the inner and outer walls of Airey houses.

Mr. Bevan

Appropriate instructions are being issued for the replacement of the insulating materials in question which were not an integral part of the Airey system of construction.
