Mr. Gregory

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what national guidance is available to fire authorities on the standard of fire protection appropriate to places of public entertainment; what plans there are to give further guidance; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Mellor

The Home Office is currently preparing a national advisory standard on fire precautions in places of public entertainment (based on existing local guidance) for use by fire authorities when advising licensing authorities on the fire precautions to be imposed in such places.
