Tayside Fire & Rescue Board



On Monday I attended a meeting of the Tayside Fire and Rescue Board, if you click on the link you can read the papers for this meeting. The main item on the agenda was further consideration of the Scottish Government's proposals for the future of the fire service in Scotland. I was disappointed that the Scottish Government would not allow their business case for a single fire service to be brought forward. It is clear in these discussions that we need to have as much information as possible about the pros and cons of the various options. The Scottish Government should bring forward its case and make clear which option it favours.
