§ MR. GEORGE FABER (York)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty whether any further reductions are proposed to be made in the coastguard; and whether, considering the assistance accustomed to be rendered by the coastguard to the National Lifeboat Institution, he can state whether any action will be taken by His Majesty's Government to prevent the efficiency of the lifeboat service being impaired by the reductions in the coastguard.
§ * THE CIVIL LORD OF THE ADMIRE ALTY (Mr. LAMBERT,) Devonshire, South Molton
As I stated yesterday, my right hon. friend will deal with this question to-day.
