From the department of statin' the bleedin' obvious, we have this pearl:
Date of Lodging: 8 September 2008
Short Title: The Fire and Rescue Service S3M-02504
Gil Paterson (West of Scotland) (SNP): That the Parliament notes the important service that the fire and rescue service provides in our communities and thanks all those who dedicate themselves to delivering it; believes that the quicker fire crews respond to incidents the better chance they have of rescuing those who seek assistance, and supports the campaign to reintroduce incident response standards.
Meanwhile doctors, nurses and train drivers etc go up in arms at not being recognised.
