§ Ms Walley
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, pursuant to his answer of 24 June,Official Report, column 259, if he will make available the report of Her Majesty's fire service inspectorate following its visits to the Palace of Westminster to monitor progress on the agreed programme of work over the past 10 years; and if he will list the specific points which have required the other visits to which he refers.
§ Mr. Charles Wardle
The record of visits to monitor progress on the programme of works leading to fire certification is not kept in the form of a report. The other visits have been numerous, usually to provide advice on a variety of fire safety matters such as the enclosure of stairways, fire doors, signs, and the appointment of in-house fire safety specialists. In both cases the information requested could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
