HC Deb 27 February 1908 vol 185 cc33-4
MR. SUMMERBELL (Sunderland)

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty, in cases where coastguards are to be abolished, if he can state what arrange- ments are to be made by the Government as to attendance upon the telegraphic and telephonic communications established for life-saving purposes, the erosion of the foreshores, notice as to vessels in distress or wrecks of same, and all such duties as are now performed by coastguards.


I propose to make a statement on this subject when introducing the Navy Estimates.
