§ 43. Mrs. Gwyneth Dunwoody
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, whether he is aware that on 16th October the entire on-duty watch of the Exeter City Fire Brigade were involved in an exercise from 10.07 hours to 16.36 hours at Poltimore House, some four miles away from their headquarters; and whether he is satisfied that such an exercise is in accordance with his regulations on the standards of training to be observed by fire authorities.
§ Miss Alice Bacon
I understand that the exercise in question was for the purpose of giving training in emergency fire-fighting, and my right hon. Friend is in consultation with the fire authority about the circumstances. There are no regulations dealing with standards of training.
