We have been given an opportunity to ask via a london based journalist a question of David Milliband.
West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue are currently "consulting" with the community of West Yorkshire in regard to losing one in five operational fire fighting posts. The West Yorkshire Fire Authority is labour controlled and is looking likely (the same as last year infact) to rubber stamp viscous cuts in front line fire fighters whilst keeping the management positions unscathed.
Will you condone this - a labour authority cutting coal face workers (many of them members of the Fire Brigades Union) in favour of retaining positions at the top table........?
We await the response with interest .......................
