To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department when he expects to receive the results of the review that is being currently carried out by the South Yorkshire fire authority of its own operations; and if he will make a statement.

I understand that the chief fire officer of South Yorkshire fire service is reviewing the fire risk categorisation and standards of fire cover throughout the South Yorkshire area. When the review has been completed, the chief fire officer will submit his report and findings to the South Yorkshire fire and civil defence authority. I understand that the review is still at a very early stage and it would be inappropriate for my right hon. and learned friend to speculate on when the results of the review will be available.
