Scrapping School Sprinklers

EDM number 468 in 2016-17, proposed by Kate Hoey on 14/09/2016.
Categorised under the topics of Fire services and Schools.

That this House deplores the decision to scrap the expectation that sprinklers will be installed in all new school buildings except for low risk schools; believes that such a retrograde measure could compromise the safety of children, staff, local communities and firefighters; recognises that sprinkler systems help ensure swift evacuation from fires; notes that sprinklers have helped save 17 schools from major fire damage; further notes that the average cost of a large school fire is now £2.8 million; and calls on the Government to reintroduce these vital requirements forthwith.

This motion has been signed by a total of 47 MPs.
