The author considers the significance of the Inner House decision in A J Allan (Blairnyle) Ltd v Strathclyde Fire Board  CSIH 3; 2016 S.L.T. 253, the latest in a line of cases involving the potential liability of the fire service. Not only is the case an important one in relation to the potential liability of firefighters (and public authority liability more generally), but it also considers the increasingly important role of policy in determining the scope of any duty of care.
