§ 49. Mr. Arthur Lewis
asked the Minister for the Civil Service whether he will arrange far an organised fire drill to be taken at all Government buildings employing more than a nominal number of persons, on a periodical basis.
§ Mrs. Hart
Existing arrangements provide for an appropriate fire procedure for each building and for the instruction of the staff in this, and in the use of escape routes. The decision whether organised drills are necessary is left to the responsible officer in charge of each building. These officers are being asked to make sure that their arrangements continue to be satisfactory in the light of recent fires elsewhere.
