The welcome news that the Employers' Organisation is to be scrapped (LGC, 2 June) brings a sense of satisfaction to those of us who went through the fire dispute on behalf of the fire authorities.

The guilty parties from last August are reaping their rewards: the EO is no more, Peter Chalke (Con) stood down at the elections, the voters got rid of Chris Clarke (Lib Dem) and Sir Jeremy Beecham (Lab) hangs on. Through the sorry saga, the EO was chaired by Ian Swithenbank, who now heads the Improvement & Development Agency. Those politicians who messed up should not just blame their officers by dismantling the EO but accept their responsibility and resign.

Brian Coleman

Conservative leader, London Fire & Emergency Planning Authority
