PE1147 Petition by Mrs Annmargaret Watson, on behalf of Fire Reforms Actions Group, calling on the Scottish Parliament to urge the Scottish Government to review current legislation to ensure that each local authority is represented on the fire service joint board to ensure that board decisions reflect local concerns and views and to revise legislation which prevents local authorities from increasing fire cover without full joint board authorisation and to bring this into line with police service cover.
