To ask the Secretary of Stale for Transport when the cuts proposed in the recently published consultation paper on the review of the coastguard service are due to be finalised; and if he will make a statement.

An implementation plan for each region was prepared and submitted to coastguard headquarters by the regional controller, which covered a four year period of implementation beginning in the financial year 1991–92, once the recommendations and proposals made in the review had been granted ministerial approval.The implementation of the review's recommendations will ensure that Her Majesty's Coastguard continues to provide the best possible search and rescue service, in an efficient and cost-effective manner, into the future, in the way outlined in my announcement to the House on 3 December 1991.
