Prime Minister David Cameron has confirmed that the SAR centre at Kinloss will be closed and operations moved to near Portsmouth. Full details are in the HERALD or on the SNP website. I had previously written of this in December when these plans were revealed. The practical applications of Better Together has seen SAR privatised, and assets stripped from Scotland to the point there is virtually nothing left. It’s time that the Scottish Government were given the powers over these areas to make sure Scotland has a fully functional Government funded SAR service for those who live, work and visit our remote areas and work in Scottish waters.
