§ Mr. Russell Johnston
asked the President of the Board of Trade what consideration is being given to the proposal by Aberdeen County Council that there should be an independent investigation into lifeboat design.
§ Mr. Goronwy Roberts
I am urgently considering the letter from the Aberdeen County Council concerning the lifeboat disaster at Fraserburgh, and also the report by the Royal National Life-Boat Institution on the disaster. I hope to make a statement very shortly.
