Lieutenant Herbert Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will consider introducing a system of age and service release from the N.F.S. in place of the present system, by which the area fire officers decide redundancy irrespective of the men's claims for release.

I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to my reply to Questions by the hon. Member for Bridgwater (Mr. Bartlett) and the hon. Member for Spennymoor (Mr. Murray) on 8th November, of which I am sending him a copy.
