Public Buildings: Fire Prevention

Volume 470: debated on Tuesday 15 January 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government if she will seek discussions with Cabinet colleagues on reviewing guidance on fire reduction (a) regulation and (b) technology in relation to publicly owned buildings; and if she will make a statement. (178242)

My Department has published technical risk assessment guidance for those responsible for fire safety under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. This order applies to all non-domestic buildings and includes publicly owned buildings. As with all guidance documentation, my Department will keep this under review.
