HC Deb 07 February 1963 vol 671 c84W
36. Mr. Fletcher

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will review the procedure under the Explosives Act so as to ensure that adequate public notice is given to members of the public defining the sites in respect to which liability to prosecution under the Act arises.

Mr. Brooke

Section 77 of the Explosives Act, 1875, requires the occupier of premises where explosives are manufactured or stored to post up in some conspicuous place or places a notice or notices warning all persons of their liability to penalties for entering the land occupied by them without permission. I do not think that it is possible to be more specific in a statutory provision, but I have asked the Inspectors of Explosives to inquire into the arrangements made during the course of their inspections.
