Do you share the concern of National Fire Chiefs Council that the Government’s spending review failed to address the employers’ pension contribution for fire sector workers and much needed investment for protection work?

Yes. It is essential that the fire service allocation in the 2020/21 spending round and the spending review for 2021/22 provide adequate resources to the fire service. They must meet current and developing demands, including those from pensions costs, and any new risks identified, such as those in relation to fire safety and the built environment.
