Fire Services: Resignations

Volume 475: debated on Monday 28 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government whether exit interviews are conducted with retained firefighters when leaving the Fire and Rescue Service. (201410)

The information requested is not held centrally and could be provided only at disproportionate cost.

Undertaking exit interviews for all staff is a matter of good practice. Fire and rescue services were provided with guidance encouraging this practice by the Home Office as part of two equalities action plans entitled "Toward Diversity" published in 2000 and 2001.
