HC Deb 17 November 1966 vol 736 c150W
43. Mrs. Gwyneth Dunwoody

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, whether he is aware that on 16th October the entire on-duty watch of the Exeter City Fire Brigade were involved in an exercise from 10.07 hours to 16.36 hours at Poltimore House, some four miles away from their headquarters; and whether he is satisfied that such an exercise is in accordance with his regulations on the standards of training to be observed by fire authorities.

Miss Alice Bacon

I understand that the exercise in question was for the purpose of giving training in emergency fire-fighting, and my right hon. Friend is in consultation with the fire authority about the circumstances. There are no regulations dealing with standards of training.
