HC Deb 16 May 1968 vol 764 c268W
30. Sir R. Russell

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what action is taken by his Department to draw the attention of Commonwealth immigrants when they enter Great Britain to the advisability of insuring their furniture and other property against the risk of fire.

Mr. Ennals

No advice on insurance has been issued. But the National Committee for Commonwealth Immigrants, in co-operation with the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents, are now preparing posters and intend to institute an educational campaign to warn immigrant communities of the dangers of fire. In addition, my Department have in preparation a leaflet on the principal fire risks in the home.
