Rural areas must taken into account
NORTH Devon MP Nick Harvey said he was disappointed by the proposals and would be lobbying the Government for changes to the fire funding system.
He said: "While Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue have received good settlements in the past, which reflected the rural nature of our area, their new grant does not seem to take into account the miles that they have to cover.
"I am lobbying the government to look again at how rural areas are funded so that the unique challenges we face are recognised and financially covered."
He added: "The fire service must ensure that community is protected and that people feel safe."
