On 21 October 2004 the Union presented a written submission on the above Bill to the Transport and Industrial Relations Committee (copy attached).

The Union was represented by Vice President John Devereux and Secretary Derek Best.

The Bill would require, in the absence of any freshly issued exemption, that members who drive would need to keep a Logbook and observe maximum hours of work when driving.

The Union’s submission essentially was that the general need to control driving hours is irrelevant to the Fire Service and therefore the Bill itself ought to exempt the Fire Service from the driving hours and Logbook requirements.
