To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will list the occasions when port divers from the Royal Navy Reserve have rendered assistance to police forces, coast guards or harbour authorities in Scotland in the last five years; and if he will make a statement on the effect of the closure of Royal Navy Reserve port diving branch on such civil authorities.

Assistance from RN divers is sought occasionally but there are no separate records showing when this was provided by RN Reserve port divers. I do not anticipate that the closure of the RN Reserve port diving branch will have any significant effect on such authorities.
