Adjournment debate


MPs took part in a short debate on fire services in Derbyshire, on 25 November 2013.

The debate was called by the Labour MP for Chesterfield, Toby Perkins.

At the end of September, Derbyshire Fire Service announced plans to reduce the number of fire stations in the county by a third.

The service is also proposing to close a quarter of full-time posts to deal with a 40% reduction to its budget.
