asked the Minister of Public Building and Works what decision he has made in respect of the application for exemption from the fire regulations in the case of the farm improvement application made by Mr. W. G. Wilcocks of Hartnoll Farm, Tiverton, Devon, on 20th April to the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, whose reference number for the application is F1397/12 E; and whether he is aware of the urgency of this application to enable the provision of grain-drying and storage facilities to be ready in time for the harvest.

My right hon. Friend is aware of the urgency and is proposing to grant the relaxation of the Building Regulations for which Mr. Wilcocks has applied. The local authority concerned has been asked to give the necessary notice to this effect to the owners and occupiers of adjoining premises in accordance with Section 8 of the Public Health Act 1961.
