Detail of outcome
On 18 February 2015, Defence Economics opened a consultation with stakeholders regarding the proposed cessation of military search and rescue statistics.
This consultation period ended on 18 March 2015. There were 2 responses from external stakeholders during the consultation period. The attached document outlines the changes that will be made to each publication together with the next publication date.
The Ministry of Defence (MOD) currently produces a National Statistics series (monthly, quarterly and annual) covering military search and rescue (SAR) statistics. From April 2015 the current mix of military and civilian search and rescue capacity will transition to a single civilian contract, managed by the Department for Transport (DfT). As part of this transition the production of military SAR statistics by the MOD will cease. Data on civilian SAR Helicopter (SAR-H) activities will be managed by the DfT and/or the Maritime Coastguard Agency (MCA).
We are now seeking external users’ views on the cessation of the MOD statistics and proposed changes to the 2015 military SAR series. Further details on the proposed changes and process can be found in the consultation document.
