To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department (1) if he has completed his re-examination and re-drafting of the proposed new fire safety regulations; and if he will make a statement.(2) what is the estimated cost to British industry of the implementation of the proposed new fire safety regulations.
My right hon. and learned Friend expects to publish proposals for revised regulations and the associated guidance in the early summer. An estimate of the compliance costs for industry will be included in the consultative document.
