Save Swansea Coastguard Campaign

EDM number 2141 in 2010-12, proposed by Martin Caton on 06/09/2011.
Categorised under the topics of Emergency services and Marine environment.

That this House congratulates the Save Swansea Coastguard Campaign, established to oppose the Government's recommendation to close Swansea Maritime Rescue Centre at Mumbles, for its energy and commitment; recognises that the campaign has attracted support from across the political spectrum and from many who are politically unaligned; congratulates those involved for already collecting more than 70,000 signatures on their protest petition, stimulating many individual submissions in the current consultation exercise, using a range of imaginative initiatives to get their message across; and therefore urges the Government to respond positively to this campaign and keep Swansea Coastguard open.

This motion has been signed by a total of 31 MPs.
