HC Deb 30 July 1980 vol 989 cc694-5W
Mr. Alton

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he is satisfied with the operation of the fire regulations and capacity limits on numbers governing public houses.

Mr. Brittan

This is a matter for the licensing justices and fire authorities in the exercise of the powers available to them under the Licensing Acts and the Fire Precautions Act 1971 respectively, but we are not aware of any general difficulty.
