HC Deb 21 May 1993 vol 225 c332W
Mr. Dunn

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what consideration he has given to the future of the Marine Emergencies Organisation.

Mr. MacGregor

I have decided that the Marine Emergencies Organisation should be a candidate for executive agency status within my Department. I am confident that this will provide the MEO with the incentive and opportunity to enhance the well-regarded service it already provides. The necessary preparatory work is being put in hand for the organisation to become an agency on 1 April 1994.
