To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what steps the Government has taken to ensure fire prevention work is conducted in Southwark since the closure for Southwark Fire Station.
Answer (Mr Nick Hurd)
Each fire and rescue authority is required to produce an integrated risk management plan identifying and assessing the fire and rescue related risks facing its communities, and to demonstrate how their resources will be used to mitigate these. It is the responsibility of each fire and rescue authority to manage their resources across prevention, protection and operational response to meet local risk.
