asked Her Majesty's Government:Whether they will continue to provide a search and rescue helicopter at Portland after 31 March.

This temporary arrangement for the provision of a coastguard search and rescue (SAR) helicopter at Portland will be extended for a further eight months, until the end of November. Longer-term decisions on the disposition of SAR helicopters will depend in part on the consultation on the interdepartmental review. We hope to publish the review's findings shortly.
