HC Deb 02 December 1930 vol 245 c1976
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?


No, Sir, but I hope to be in a position shortly to make a statement.

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?


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.
