§ Mr. McMaster
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland when he last met representatives of the Fire Services National Benevolent Fund in Scotland; what matters were discussed; when he next plans to meet them; and if he will make a statement.728W
§ Mr. Lang
I have not yet had the opportunity of meeting representatives of the Fire Services National Benevolent Fund in Scotland. Other commitments have regrettably prevented me from accepting invitations to the 50th anniversary commemorative service in Stirling and the fund's golden jubilee reception at the Guildhall, London to celebrate fifty years of charitable endeavour in support of retired and serving members of the United Kingdom fire services.
