HC Deb 20 November 1979 vol 974 cc93-4W
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 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.
