Section 354: Crown application
865.The Act applies to the Crown, which includes government departments and crown servants. However, the Act has no effect in relation to anything done on premises occupied by the armed forces.
866.Subsection (3) ensures that a reference to “fire and rescue authority” in the Act will be substituted with a reference to “Her Majesty’s Fire Inspectorate” in relation to premises for which Her Majesty’s Fire Inspectorate is the proper fire authority. In particular, in respect of those properties for which they have responsibility, Her Majesty’s Fire Inspectorate will be a responsible authority under Parts 8 and 9 and will be required to be notified of any application for a premises licence in relation to those premises.
