Mr. Roche Mr. Roche
Mr. Roche: I propose to take Questions Nos. 399 and 411 together.
I refer to the reply to Parliamentary Questions Nos. 397 to 399, inclusive, of 17 May 2005. In addition to the recommendations contained in the report entitled Review of Fire Safety and Fire Services in Ireland, published in 2001, which have been implemented so far, the fire services change programme which I announced in February 2005 involves projects in four linked priority areas covered in the report.
