asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will give, for each of the weeks in November 1977, the number of reported public fires, the actual or estimated costs of same, and the losses in money and lives; and how these figures compare with 1976.

In the seven days from 14th to 20th November 1977, 3,992 fires and 18 fatalities in fires were reported. I regret that the other information asked for is not available.
