That the following motion,
proposed by Councillor Tindall and seconded by Councillor England
“Council affirms the view that the Fire and Rescue Service should remain under the control and democratic accountability of Hertfordshire County Council, rather than being taken over by the Police and Crime Commissioner. Council therefore fully supports the view taken by the County Council in this regard, and its Leader’s submission to the Home Office.
Council instructs the Chief Executive to write to the Home Office in a similar vein, confirming this Council’s opposition to the proposed takeover.”
