Library: News: FIA Meets Business Secretary, Vince Cable


On 27 August 2010, the FIA met with the UK Government’s Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills and President of the Board of Trade, The Rt Hon Dr Vince Cable MP.

The FIA reported that “Dr Cable affirmed both his personal concern and that of the government that the fire protection in buildings is a life safety item and ‘cowboy’ contractors could therefore be bringing serious dangers to the industry” adding that he said that “it is important to get it right at the front end, to ensure fire safety equipment is up to professional standards”.

The FIA goes on to report that “Dr Cable agreed that the work of fire safety contractors should be of the highest quality and said, ‘The government is looking at how industry can do more to help with this matter [and]… what can be done to ensure fire safety standards are adhered to’”.
