HC Deb 26 February 1952 vol 496 cc113-4W
82. Mr. Eric Johnson

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he is now in a position to make a further statement about fires in prefabricated houses started by faulty electrical wiring.

Mr. Macmillan

I am informed that investigation has shown that the chief cause has been the misuse of the electrical installation, and that an advisory leaflet to tenants is being issued by the council concerned.
