HC Deb 10 July 1973 vol 859 c327W
Mr. Ian Lloyd

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry whether he will list the location of small boat safety "gateways" which he is planning to establish in the Solent area during July and August in line with his proposals entitled "Small Craft Safety Month".

Mr. Michael Heseltine

The small boat safety "gateways" established on an experimental basis at the Department's suggestion were in Torbay and Whitby, but one has been established at local initiative in South Wales and we hope that this will occur elsewhere, including the Solent area. My Department has been active in encouraging a water safety campaign, which is being run this month in the Isle of Wight.
