Pledge on re­view of sea ser­vice

Evening Express (Extra Edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

PRIME Min­is­ter David Cameron has as­sured MPs that changes will only be made to the coast­guard ser­vice if they would bring im­prove­ments.

Pro­pos­als are be­ing con­sid­ered which would leave Aberdeen as Scot­land’s only 24-hour manned sta­tion.

But, dur­ing ques­tions in the House of Com­mons, Mr Cameron said: “We want to make changes only if they im­prove the coast­guard sup­port that peo­ple in fish­ing com­mu­ni­ties and else­where get.

“If that is not the case, we will ob­vi­ously have to re­con­sider the re­forms, and that is why they are be­ing re­viewed.”
