Lilley: Let troops in Hertfordshire use modern fire engines

- Friday, 15th November 2002

 

In the face of the first national fire strike for 25 years, and threats of
rolling 8-day long strikes in the run up to Christmas, Peter Lilley, MP for
Hitchin and Harpenden, today called for the Armed Forces to be able to use
modern fire-fighting equipment to help save lives.

Peter Lilley said:

"Across Hertfordshire, there are seven reserve fire appliances which could
be used to help train troops in using the modern equipment and supplement
the Green Goddesses. In addition, there are fire appliances in training
centres which can also be deployed.

"These fire engines are not owned by trade unions. They were paid for by
taxpayers? money to save lives. We should not let outdated views about
crossing picket lines harm public safety."
