Motion text

That this House supports the campaign to save the St Abbs lifeboat in Berwickshire from closure; notes that St Abbs is the largest diving area in the UK and that there is a risk that the removal of a locally-based lifeboat able to respond to incidents rapidly will discourage recreational visitors in particular; recognises that the retention of a lifeboat in this very busy and popular location for diving is a matter of public safety; and urges the Royal National Lifeboat Institution to fulfil its priority mission of saving lives at sea by reversing this unpopular decision.
