Maritime Strategy

Volume 705: debated on Tuesday 4 November 2008

Our strategy remains fundamentally as set out in British Shipping: Charting a New Course. We continue to work with the UK shipping industry and maritime trade unions in pursuit of policies aimed at increasing skills, encouraging employment and training, and maintaining the UK's attractiveness as a quality centre of shipping excellence. We also work with EU member states and others within the International Maritime Organisation to secure the highest achievable levels of maritime safety and pollution prevention.
