Question

In response to my previous question (2014/0452) on the national fire dispute where I asked what discussions you may have had with national government on a resolution, you implied that as the dispute was between government and the FBU, it was not under your powers.  Yet, you happily remark on national tax policy, why not the fire dispute that impacts on the London Fire Brigade that is part of the GLA family?

I did not imply that - it is a matter of fact.

I take the view that the dispute has the best chance of being resolved by those directly involved in it working together to find a solution.
