Netanyahu made the request in a meeting he convened in his office of the ministerial committee on governmental oversight, which is headed by Justice Minister Yaakov Neeman.
Netanyahu's office said Lindenstraus would submit his report to the government as soon as possible within the next four months. The ministerial committe gave relevant government ministries three months to report to Lindenstraus about changes they were making to fix problems and inadequacies that were revealed in his report last week
about the deficiencies in Israel's fire service.
