HC Deb 06 August 1976 vol 916 c1095W
Mr. Anthony Grant

asked the Secretary of State for Trade what was the cost of the coastguard organisation for each of the last five years.

Mr. Clinton Davis

Expenditure on Her Majesty's Coastguard for each of the last five years in thousands of pounds, was as follows (the 1975–76 figures are provisional):

1971–72 £1,495
1972–73 £1,771
1973–74 £2,261
1974–75 £3,170
1975–76 £4,633

Coastguard accommodation and buildings costing individually less than £50,000 are not included in these figures because expenditure on such works and on maintenance of buildings cannot be obtained without excessive staff effort.
