You can listen to the full show here. The question on firefightersâ€™ pensions is asked at the 39 minute stage.
The panellists included Conservative transport minister John Hayes, Labour shadow secretary of state for the environment Maria Eagle, deputy leader of the Liberal Democrats Malcolm Bruce MP and Ukip MEP Louise Bours.
Matt Wrack, FBU general secretary, said: â€œThis highlights the impact lobbying can have. By making the case directly to politicians they are forced to confront the issues and engage with our arguments.â€
