"They Work for You" - No.4

Communities and Local Government
Chemicals: Teesside

Written Answers on 25 Mar 2008

Question by : Dari Taylor (Stockton South, Labour) Hansard source

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what fire risk assessment has been carried out in respect of (a) the largest chemical industry installation on Teesside and (b) the proximity of chemical industry installations to urban settlements on Teesside.

Answer by : Parmjit Dhanda (Parliamentary Under-Secretary, Department for Communities and Local Government) Hansard source

Fire and rescue authorities (FRAs) are required by the fire and rescue service national framework to have in place and maintain an integrated risk management plan (IRMP) which reflects local need and sets out plans to tackle effectively both existing and potential risks to communities. The IRMP enables the authority to tailor cover to fire and other incidents to local circumstances—evaluating where risk is greatest and allocating resource accordingly. It is not for central Government to comment upon or intervene in the operational proposals in an authority's IRMP including, in this case, any assessment of the risks posed by chemical installations in Teesside.

The draft fire and rescue service national framework 2008-11, which has recently been out to public consultation, requires FRAs' IRMPs to have regard to the risk analyses completed by local and regional resilience forums including those reported in external community risk registers (CRRs). Cleveland FRA will therefore need to have regard to any chemical installation risks identified in the CRR.

The italics above are mine.

So, let me get this right.

If someone points out to Central Government that the local assessment of the chemical risk on Teesside is that is about as dangerous as a box of red matches and they propose to allocate two men and a bucket of sand to deal with it, then it is not for Central Government to comment ?

I thought they were elected to govern ?

Seems I got it wrong again.
