HC Deb 08 November 1973 vol 863 c213W
40. Mr. Shore

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, in view of recent major fires at St. Katherine's Wharf, St. John's Wharf and 40 Dock Street in the constituency of Stepney, if he will take steps to satisfy himself that such buildings do not constitute a major fire hazard.

Mr. Lane

It is the fire authority's responsibility, having regard to the fire risks in its area, to make the necessary provision for fire-fighting purposes.
