Motion text

That this House recognises the essential service provided by the RNLI throughout the UK and the long and devoted service of many of its volunteers; further recognises the importance of RNLI stations to coastal and island communities; notes that many local authorities set aside social housing that is reserved exclusively for those who are deemed key workers including NHS staff, firefighters and those in the police force; further notes that the Government does not consider RNLI volunteers to fall into this category; is concerned of the effect that this will have on recruiting and retaining RNLI staff; and calls on the Government to reconsider this classification for the RNLI and provide all reasonable means to support local authorities in their housing provision for key emergency service workers.
