§ Mr. Sharp
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what premises are now occupied by the Fire Service College; what has been the average number of students in residence; where are the new premises which require adaptation; and what is the estimated average number of students who will then be accommodated.
§ Mr. Ede
The premises occupied by the College are in the Ocean Hotel, Salt-dean, near Brighton. The average number of students in residence during the last year has not exceeded 35, owing to a shortage of instructors. The new premises are Wotton House, Wotton, near Dorking, and it is estimated that the average number of students who will be accommodated there will be 60.
