A Press release from Strathclyde FRS, with supportive comments from the FBU EC member is available here
Roddy Robertson, the Scottish Executive Council Member of the Fire Brigades Union, added: “The Accounts Commission report takes little or no account of the movement of resources across Scotland, which has taken place in the last 10 years. It also takes little account of Scotland Together. The briefing is one dimensional in relation to cost and lacks both balance and common sense. We agree with Chief Officer Sweeney that it is a very clumsy review and we would not wish to be associated with its findings.”
