Reaction from Fire Brigades Union to Gordon Brown's speech at TUC Conference Today

LIVERPOOL, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Sept. 15, 2009) - Matt Wrack, FBU general secretary said: "The frontline of the fire service is being targeted for savage cuts right here and now. Yet corporate and management jobs have increased by 40% since Labour came to office.

"Tough spending choices may have to be made, but they also need to be the right choices. The test will be if Gordon Brown starts protecting the frontline from cuts rather than just saying he will."
