HC Deb 15 July 1997 vol 298 c97W
Mr. Kidney

To ask to the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will promote the adoption of schemes along the lines of the partnership in Stafford, between fire-rescue services, local councils and health visitors to fit and check smoke detectors in the homes of new-born babies. [7866]

Mr. George Howarth

We welcome the use of multi-agency projects to promote fire safety messages and will consider how far such schemes should be promoted nationally in the light of the pilot's success and the recommendations of the Community Fire Safety Task Force, which is due to report in the autumn.
