Fire Research Academy

Volume 498: debated on Monday 26 October 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what funding his Department has allocated for the establishment of the Fire Research Academy. (292591)

Pump-priming of a sector led ‘Fire Research Academy’ is included in this year’s Fire and Resilience Directorate research programme, which was drawn up in consultation with stakeholders.

Funding is not yet allocated to it and will be dependent upon the sustainability of any business proposal put forward, the level of sector support and ministerial consideration.
