Merchant Shipping and Other Transport (Environmental Protection) (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2018

Volume 795: debated on Tuesday 29 January 2019

Motion to Approve

Moved by

That the draft Regulations laid before the House on 27 November 2018 be approved. Considered in Grand Committee on 23 January.

My Lords, I confirm that this is another SI that is required only in a no-deal scenario. It makes changes to legislation on controlling sulphur dioxide emissions from ships, substances used to prevent the fouling of ships’ hulls, and transport and works legislation in relation to environmental impact assessment. It corrects deficiencies that would mean that environmental legislation did not work as intended. It is designed to ensure that we continue to maintain our high environmental standards.

Motion agreed.
