HM Coastguard: Fareham

Question for Department for Transport

UIN 202472, tabled on 25 June 2014

The transition to the new HM Coastguard structure is progressive over 15 months, from September 2014 until December 2015, and is structured to incrementally deliver the right number of staff at the right point of the transition timetable.

There are currently 27 Coastguards employed at the National Maritime Operations Centre (NMOC). In preparation for the start of operational duties in September 2014 this will increase further as successful internal candidates are released from their current operational duties elsewhere around the UK.

Once the transition is complete, and the NMOC fully operational, this figure will rise to 96 Coastguard Officers.
