HC Deb 23 June 1986 vol 100 c32W
Mr. John Fraser

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many people have died in fires in hotels, bed and breakfast accommodation and houses in multiple occupation in each of the last five years.

Mr. Giles Shaw

The readily available figures are given in the table. A more specific breakdown by type of building could be provided only at disproportionate cost. Information for 1985 is not yet available.

Mr. Hurd

In the case of Mr. Shahid Saleem, I refer the right hon. Member to the reply I gave to his question on 18 June at columns542–3.

In the case of Mr. Nazir Ahmed, the sequence of events before and on 18 June is the subject of an inquiry. Once this has been completed, I will write to the right hon. Member.
