Ambulance Services: Crimes of Violence

Volume 497: debated on Monday 12 October 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland (1) when he last met representatives of the Northern Ireland Fire Service to discuss attacks on their staff whilst on duty; (289265)

(2) when he last met with senior Ambulance Service officials to discuss attacks on their staff whilst on duty in Northern Ireland.

The PSNI is committed to bringing to justice those who carry out these abhorrent attacks. I have not met with senior officials or representatives from Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service and Northern Ireland Ambulance Service recently. However, the Health Minister for Northern Ireland is aware of my continued concern for the well-being of emergency services staff
