When a few months ago the Fire Offices Committee put at the disposal of the Ministry of Home Security the services of their Regional Technical Committee, I asked Regional Commissioners to call upon these Committees for advice in all suitable cases. I am glad to be able to say that many of these Committees have rendered valuable assistance both to Regional Commissioners and the Departments responsible for the storage of commodities.
