Fires (2020)

Request

I note with interest the 19 fires that took place during these 3 years. Can you tell me what happened with these? Are further details recorded such as costs incurred, any injuries recorded, the number of firefighters required to subdue these and where they occurred within the Commons areas of Parliament?

 

Response

Information to respond to your request is held by the House of Commons.

Details of each incident.
This information appears in the entries on the incident log maintained by the Fire Officers for fire incidents on House of Commons' maintained areas of the parliamentary estate for the requested period.

It may also be helpful for us to clarify the extent of this information, as you have highlighted that you would like to receive information relating to “costs incurred, any injuries recorded, the number of firefighters required to subdue these and where they occurred within the Commons areas of Parliament.” Of these, disaggregated costs of fire incidents, specific injuries incurred during an incident and the number of firefighters information are not specifically recorded by the House of Commons and so cannot be provided.
