§ 20. Mr. Evelyn King
asked the Secretary of State for Trade what plans he has to run down the coastguard services at Swanage and St. Aldhelm's Head; and for what reasons.
§ Mr. Clinton Davis
I have no plans to run down these services, but, consistent with the general policy of increasing VHF coverage in preference to the much less effective visual watch, I propose to make greater use of auxiliary coastguard at these two stations.
