HC Deb 21 December 1972 vol 848 cc422-3W
Mr. Dodds-Parker

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, in view of the fact that the provisions of the Fire Precautions Act 1971 have now been brought into force so far as hotels are concerned, if he will seek powers to ensure that there will be no conflict between national and local legislation with regard to fire precautions in hotel premises.

Mr. Lane

Section 30 of the Fire Precautions Act 1971 provides that, where a fire certificate under the Act is in force, any provision of a local Act in respect of a requirement imposed by the fire certificate shall not apply.
