§ Mr. Rosindell
To ask the Deputy Prime Minister how many man-hours have been lost in the Fire Service in the London Borough of Havering as a result of strike action in the past 12 months. 
§ Mr. Raynsford
Information on the exact number of man-hours lost in Havering due to the strikes in the Fire Service is not held centrally, and could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
However, there are two shifts in a 24-hour period. Twenty shifts were severely affected by strike action by members of the Fire Brigades Union in November 2002, six in January 2003 and four in February 2003.
