Fire station closures will be opposed by Liberal Democrats - Stephen Knight

January 11, 2013 4:39 PM

Stephen Knight, Liberal Democrat London Assembly Member and member of the London Fire Emergency and Planning Authority, commentingon fire brigade proposals to close 12 fire stations said: 

"These cuts being forced on London's fire brigade by Boris Johnson will make London less safe and are unnecessary. 

"Just over a week ago the Mayor tried to grab headlines with a 7 pence a week cut  in the council tax.   Instead of offering a trivial cut in the council tax that no one will notice the Mayor should be using this money to protect the safety of Londoners.

"These proposed cuts will be opposed by Liberal Democrats on the London Fire Emergency and Planning Authority."
