Portland Coastguard Chopper Debate Back on the Agenda at Westminster
7:30am 3rd December 2012
The Minister for Transport will meet South Dorset's MP today (Monday 3rd December) to discuss Portland's Coastguard Helicopter.
Richard Drax has campaigned to save the chopper ever since former Secretary of State MP Justine Greening announced plans to scrap it in nearly 2 years ago.
He'll be trying to persuade Minister Steven Hammond to launch a consultation looking into the controversial proposals.
Mr Drax contributed a 12 page report to the Transport Select Committee who asked for evidence on changed to the Portland Coastguard Service in September.
