HC Deb 17 March 1927 vol 203 cc2195-6
62. Mr. E. EVANS

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he has considered the advisability of increasing the life-saving facilities available on the West Coast of Wales; and whether he is yet in a position to make any pronouncement as to his intentions in that direction?


Yes, Sir. This matter has been receiving very careful consideration, and I hope it will soon prove possible to open mobile rocket life-saving apparatus stations at Aberstwyth and Barmouth, and to arrange for watch to be kept at these places when the conditions of weather make that desirable. A new coastguard station will shortly be opened at Penmon on the Isle of Anglesey, and it is proposed to place a coastguard station at Abersoch.

Forward to
