Clause 14 - Directions as to reinforcement schemes
Fire and Rescue Services Bill
Mr Stephen McCabe (Birmingham, Hall Green, Labour)
I want to make sure that I have understood the hon. Gentleman's position. Two elected authorities of politicians have difficulty coming to a single decision and are therefore referred to the Secretary of State, but the hon. Gentleman does not believe that politicians should make a decision, so he wants a Committee of more politicians to deliberate on that decision. Am I clear?
