§ Mr. Dunnett
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, having regard to the likely lack of fire protection cover which would result from the closing of the Dunkirk fire station in Nottingham, he will, under the Fire Services 94W Acts, call for a local inquiry prior to permitting the phasing out of this station.
§ Mr. Whitelaw
No. I have recently received proposals from the Nottingham- shire county council for varying the establishment scheme of the county fire brigade, which I have under consideration. These do not include the closure of Dunkirk fire station.
