Answer for Police and Crime Commissioner

Answered By: 
The Mayor

I am pleased that the Government has published a joint consultation paper to seek views on proposals to drive greater collaboration between the emergency services and to enable closer working between police and fire and rescue services.

Londoners expect the elected Mayor to have responsibility for fire services and to achieve this we need a change to LFEPA's future governance.
