HC Deb 02 May 1972 vol 836 c122W
Mr. Sproat

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what estimate his Department has made of the cost of keeping a rescue helicopter permanently in readiness at Dyce Airport.

Mr. Noble:

No such estimate has been made. Under the Supply Estimates HC 159–4 Vote 2 for 1972–73 £60,000 is provided for the arrangements under which the helicopters which service drilling rigs from Dyce Airport are made available for long-range air-sea rescue in the North Sea.
