Navigation: Thames Estuary

Volume 474: debated on Tuesday 1 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government if she will commission research on the effect of the availability of pilots on shipping movements in the Thames estuary; and if she will make a statement. (197244)

I have been asked to reply.

No; pilotage services on the Thames are a matter for the Port of London Authority as the relevant competent harbour authority.
