To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government how many project risks there are on the FiReControl Risk Register; how many are currently rated high or above; and what the nature is of those risks currently rated high or above. (305845)

As we published in the FiReControl Business Case, there are a 176 risks on the project risk register of which sixteen are rated 'high' or 'very high'.

These risks fall into three main categories:

Timely completion of FiReControl and Firelink project activities (critical dependencies)

Timely decision making within local authorities and local authority controlled company's (governance and management capacity)

The pace of change within the service (strategic change/impact).
