Select Committee on European Union Fortieth Report


Letter from the Chairman to Stephen Ladyman MP, Minister of State for Transport, Department for Transport

  Sub-Committee B considered this document, and your Explanatory memorandum at its meeting on 17 July.

  We note and share your clearly expressed concerns over the necessity of this proposal, given the alternative of non-legislative action, and over the implications for Community competence and the influence of the United Kingdom within the International Maritime Organisation.

  We note that you do not expect this proposal to be taken forward under the Finnish or the German Presidencies, and would of course be grateful for any news of the timetable as it develops.

  We will hold this proposal under scrutiny.
