To ask Her Majesty's Government when they expect a decision to be made on the proposals by five police and crime commissioners to take on the functions of fire and rescue authorities under the Policing and Crime Act 2017.

Six PCCs have submitted proposals to take on governance of local fire and rescue services (Northamptonshire, Hertfordshire, Staffordshire, West Mercia, Cambridgeshire and North Yorkshire). Five of these did not have agreement from the relevant local authorities and so in November 2017 the Secretary of State commissioned independent assessments of the proposals in accordance with the legislation.

These assessments have now been received and decisions will be announced in due course.
