HC Deb 18 May 1961 vol 640 c164W
Mr. E. Taylor

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what action he proposes to take to strengthen the law relating to fire risks in club premises.

Mr. R. A. Butler

I am putting down amendments to the Licensing Bill to enable a fire authority to inspect premises in respect of which a club has applied for a new registration certificate and to object to the issue or renewal of a club registration certificate on the ground that the premises are unsuitable as regards fire risks.
