HC Deb 04 July 1983 vol 45 cc25-6W
Mr. Farr

asked the Secretary of State for Defence to what extent sprinklers were installed in the 10-acre Army store destroyed by fire on 24 June at Donnington, Shropshire.

Mr. Stanley

There were no sprinklers installed in the building in question. In addition to the Army board of inquiry which will be considering the circumstances of this particular fire, I have set in hand a review of fire prevention methods for equipment stores and of storage policy covering all three services.
