HC Deb 19 June 1961 vol 642 c93W
Mr. Woodburn

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he will instruct his inspector to survey the fire-fighting services in central Scotland, with a view to satisfying himself that there is an adequate proportion of trained men to part-time firemen in each area.

Mr. Maclay

I receive, each year, particulars of the establishments of whole-time and part-time members of all fire brigades in Scotland and also the reports of the visits of inspection made by Her Majesty's Inspector of Fire Services for Scotland. The manning position in central Scotland, and elsewhere, is kept under review in the light of the information so provided.
