Report of the Tynwald Select Committee into the Fire at Bradda Head, Port Erin 7 December 2005

    The Department of Home Affairs, in noting recent media comments concerning the recommendations contained within the Two Member Tynwald Select Committee Report into the Fire at Bradda Head, considers these comments as lacking in balance in terms of focusing only on the negative aspects of the report.

    The Department accepts some of the recommendations of the Tynwald Select Committee, but reserves the right to robustly defend the Officers of the Isle of Man Fire & Rescue Service when the recommendations made by the Tynwald Select Committee are debated and voted on during the December 2005 sitting of Tynwald.

    The Department is proud of the service its Officers of the Isle of Man Fire and Rescue Service provide and is concerned that the lack of balance contained within recent media reports may have a damaging effect on the morale of its workforce.

    Until such time as the Tynwald debate has been concluded, the Department will not be making any further comment with regards to the comments and recommendations contained within that Tynwald Select Committee Report.
