Is my hon. Friend aware that during recent years a number of jive and jazz clubs have been set up in Glasgow in basements or attics? Would he agree that these present a fire hazard? Is he aware that the firemaster and the police in Glasgow have repeatedly expressed concern about these places? Is he further aware that in several of the bingo halls in Glasgow not only are all the seats occupied but participants are permitted to occupy the passageways, and does he agree that this is an unsatisfactory state of affairs?
