HC Deb 16 May 1966 vol 728 cc180-1W
Mr. Horner

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what steps he is taking to ensure that no drill or exercise by any local authority fire brigade which simulates the rescue of persons from fire and involves the use of live bodies by firemen, shall, whatever the circumstances, be undertaken except with the use of approved safety devices and under adequate supervision.

Miss Bacon

My right hon. Friend is considering the advice which he has received from the Central Fire Brigades Advisory Council and hopes to make his views known to fire authorities in the near future.
