§ 51. Mr. Parkin
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will consult the appropriate authorities with a view to speeding-up, by stages, the application to old buildings of the minimum fire safety standards required in new buildings.
§ Mr. Renton
There is no single code of fire safety requirements for buildings, old or new, as statutory provisions necessarily vary according to the nature and use of the building. My right hon. Friend will be glad to consider, with his colleagues, any particular point that the hon. Member has in mind.
