HC Deb 01 August 1978 vol 955 c317W
Mr. Parry

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will consider issuing a circular to local authorities advising the installation of fire extinguishers in multi-storey blocks of flats.

Mr. Armstrong

This is not a matter on which it is appropriate to issue general advice. The relevant fire authority is in the best position to advise the local authority on the fire fighting precautions most suitable in a particular building.
