HC Deb 10 February 1972 vol 830 c414W
64. Mr. Walter Johnson

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he is satisfied with the Fire Precaution Regulations which apply to hotels and other similar establishments; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Sharples

The existing law on fire precautions in hotels and boardinghouses is both limited in scope and diverse in its operation. The Fire Precautions Act, 1971, which was designed to remove such difficulties, will shortly be applied to hotels and boarding-houses.
