HL Deb 24 June 1980 vol 410 cc1588-9WA
Baroness STEDMAN

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they have taken a decision on the proposal that the Fire Service Staff College should be transferred from Dorking to Moreton-in-Marsh.


As a contribution to the savings in central Government manpower announced in another place on 6th December 1979, my right honourable friend the Home Secretary has decided after careful consideration that the two colleges which provide central training for the Fire Service should be merged. Staff training will be transferred to the Technical College at Moreton-in-Marsh and the separate Staff College at Dorking closed.
