Regional Fire Control

Volume 454: debated on Wednesday 13 December 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what the expected date is by which the proposed new regional fire control centres for (a) London and (b) England will be fully networked and operational; and if she will make a statement. (105092)

The precise dates depend on which prime contractor is chosen in the infrastructure services procurement for the FiReControl project which is being ran under EU procurement rules. An updated timetable is expected to be published early in the new year once a contract has been awarded. In addition, once the contract has been awarded, we will work with the fire and rescue services to establish a realistic and achievable timetable.
