HC Deb 13 February 1973 vol 850 c291W
Mr. Dalyell

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether she is aware that the construction system of the Paris school where a large number of children recently lost their lives in a fire is similar to that which has been used in the construction of a large number of British schools; and what is being done to re-examine the fire risk situation in such schools and ensure it does not arise in new schools.

Mr. St. John-Stevas

My requirements for fire precautions are laid down in Building Bulletin No. 7, a copy of which I am sending to the hon. Member. These are kept under review and I shall take into account the findings of the inquiries now being carried out by the French authorities into the incident referred to as soon as these are available.

Forward to
