Volume 487: debated on Wednesday 28 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport how many Airwave handsets issued to the Marine and Coastguard Agency have been lost in each year since their introduction; and how many handsets issued to the Agency have been disabled by the service provider through (a) loss, (b) breakage and (c) other reasons in each such year. (246186)


The Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) has never been issued with an Airwave handset.

The MCA has a fixed set and not a handset as stated in the written answer to the hon. Member for Carshalton and Wallington (Tom Brake) on 17 November 2008, Official Report, column 27W.

A correction has been issued.
