Request

Since the 1st of January 2017 how many fires or outbreaks of have been reported across the estate to date ?

 

 

Response

Please note that, although the House of Commons and House of Lords are separate public authorities in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000, fire safety is a bicameral service and so our response covers the whole of Parliament.

This information is held by the House of Commons. The number of fires or outbreaks of fires reported across the parliamentary estate from 1 January 2017 to 1 November 2017 is seven.  It may help you to know that the Fire Risk Management Team classify any incident involving a flame as a fire. All incidents in 2017 were quickly identified and dealt with before any risk to occupants or damage to the buildings.
