I am fairly clear about HM Gov being determined that an equivalent service will be provided.

We do not yet know what a service under the MAIN contract for the UK SAR Helicopter Service and CAP 999 v2 will be like in practice and we will not know until next April. Detailed technical requirements are greater in that contract than in any other contract awarded for this type of work in the UK.

It is not clear to me what effect that watershed will have on operations out of Sumburgh, Stornoway, Lee and Portland. These are still on the GAP contract until 2017.
