§ 35. Mr. Henderson Stewart
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what steps are being taken to implement the recommendations contained in the Report of Whisky Storage by the Edinburgh and Glasgow Technical (Fire Prevention) Committees?
The recommendations in the Report are in accordance with general policy which has been followed by the Regional Commissioner since the beginning of the dispersal scheme in June, 1940. The proprietors of the bonds concerned have been asked by the Regional Commissioner to carry out the recommendations in the Report relating to further dispersal or re-stowing of whisky stocks and to structural alterations. Air-raid shelters which are in dangerous positions have been closed.
May I take it that the Regional Commissioner is to satisfy himself that these steps are, in fact, taken?
