§ Mr. Cohen
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will list each fire station in England and634W Wales that has been closed since May 1979; and if he will give details of the appliance deployment and whole time, day manning, or retained, fire fighter staffing, as appropriate, at each immediately prior to closure.
§ Mr. John Patten
The information sought is not readily available and could be provided only at disproportionate cost. If, however, the hon. Member has any particular case in mind he may wish to write to me.
