HC Deb 29 March 1973 vol 853 cc373-4W
Mr. Geoffrey Finsberg

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what prior consultations took place with affected parties prior to the issue by the Home Office of the code of practice entitled "Fire Precautions in Town Centre Redevelopment".

Mr. Lane

This code, which is primarily for the guidance of the fire service, was prepared by a working party of the Joint Fire Prevention Committee of the Central Fire Brigades Advisory Councils for England and Wales and for Scotland, on which the fire service, local authorities and Government Departments are represented. No other bodies were consulted before the code was issued.
