§ 61. Mr. Clark Hutchison
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many schools there are in Scotland built on the CLASP system; and if he will make a statement on the safety of this system.
§ Mr. Gordon Campbell
About 60 schools or extensions to schools have been built in the CLASP system and 10 school hostels. Buildings in this system, in common with all other school buildings in Scotland, are subject to the building standards regulations in force at the time of building. These regulations make comprehensive provision for safety, including requirements in regard to structural fire precautions and means of escape from fire.
