Coastguard Services (Falmouth)

Volume 527: debated on Thursday 28 April 2011

The petition is from more than 7,500 readers of the “Falmouth Packet” newspaper and others.

The petition states:

The Petition of residents of Falmouth,

Declares that the petitioners believe that Falmouth Coastguard must be retained as a 24 hour a day operation, because the experience and expertise of the Falmouth Coastguard could not safely be transferred elsewhere.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Secretary of State for Transport to require the Maritime and Coastguard Agency to take into account the views of residents of Falmouth in the course of its consultation on the future of the Coastguard.

And the Petitioners remain, etc.
