Local Government: Influenza

Volume 497: debated on Thursday 22 October 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government pursuant to the answer to the hon. Member for Bromley and Chislehurst (Robert Neill) of 2 June 2009, Official Report, columns 463-64W, on local government: influenza, if he will place in the Library a copy of each of the Local Resilience Forum plans that have undergone validation by each of the Government offices for the regions.

I have been asked to reply.

Local Resilience Forum (LRF) multi-agency pandemic influenza plans are locally owned and are constantly adapted and updated to reflect the most accurate assessment of the local position. We do not hold central copies of the latest plans so are unable to place them in the Library. However, the latest plans can be found on local LRF websites and can be accessed through the UK Resilience pages of the Cabinet Office website at:

In the few cases where LRF websites are still under development, LRF multi-agency pandemic influenza plans are available from the LRF Secretariat. Contact details for the secretariats are also available on the UK Resilience pages of the Cabinet Office website.
