§ 38. Commander SOUTHBY
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is now in a position to make a statement regarding the setting up of a Parliamentary committee to make a comprehensive inquiry into the whole question of the coastguard service?
§ Commander SOUTHBY
In view of the great importance of this matter to the seafaring community, if I put down a question in a week's time, will the right hon. Gentleman then be able to give me an answer?
§ Mr. GRAHAM
It is always very difficult to promise an answer within so many days. The position is that I am working very actively at the moment as regards this committee in connection with the personnel, and I hope to complete it very soon.
