HC Deb 16 February 1955 vol 537 c54W
90. Mr. Rankin

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies why there is no fire brigade in Enugu, Nigeria.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

Until recently the need has not been felt because of the type of structure of the majority of buildings and the success of traditional methods of fire-fighting in preventing any serious conflagrations. The whole question of the organisation and requirements of fire services throughout Nigeria is now being reviewed.
