To ask the Secretary of State for Transport to how many representative organisations he sent Professor Ivan Brown's report on his study into hours of work, fatigue and safety at sea; and how many have responded with comments.

Copies of Professor Brown's report were circulated on 2 February to five representative organisations: the National Union of Maritime, Aviation and Shipping Transport Officers (NUMAST); the National Union of Seamen (NUS); the General Council of British Shipping (GCBS); the British Motor Ship Owners Association (BMSOA); and the British Offshore Support Vessels Association (BOSVA). All of these organisations have now responded with comments, although one has reserved the right to make further comments at a later stage.
