Sea Rescue: Devon

Volume 487: debated on Monday 26 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what the reasons are for the time taken to initiate a consultation process following the suspension of the Hope Cove lifeboat by the Maritime and Coastguard Agency. (250216)

The Maritime and Coastguard Agency is developing a local consultation which considers the search and rescue provision across a wide area of the South West Peninsular rather than just the provision at Hope Cove. I will be writing shortly to the hon. Member about the plans for local consultation.
