Fire Service Investment

EDM number 694 in 2012-13, proposed by Kate Hoey on 06/11/2012.
Categorised under the topic of Fire services.

That this House recognises that cuts to the fire and rescue service put the public at great risk; is deeply concerned that around 1,500 frontline firefighter jobs and over 700 support jobs were lost in the last year in the UK; notes that professional bodies throughout the service including the Fire Brigades Union are warning of further reductions, which could cut one in five firefighters compared with 2010 levels; is deeply concerned that more cuts will mean slower response times to emergencies; further notes that fire station closures and fewer appliances will devastate local communities; believes that the fire and rescue service, which costs around 50 per person per year, is exceptional value for money for a world-class emergency service; further believes that the service requires investment not cuts; and calls on the Government to ensure that the forthcoming local government settlement provides funding to ensure that there are no further cuts to the fire service.

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