§ MR. HUNT (Shropshire, Ludlow)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty whether it has been decided to abolish the coastguard; if so, by whom are their duties to be discharged; and, if the coastguard is to be abolished or reduced, what men are to take their place as a reserve for the Royal Navy.
§ MR LAMBERT
I have nothing to add to the reply to my hon. friend the Member for Orkney and Shetland on the 21st November last.†
