Select Committee on European Union Fortieth Report


LIABILITY OF CARRIERS OF PASSENGERS BY SEA AND INLAND WATERWAY IN THE EVENT OF ACCIDENTS (6827/06)

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 24 April 2006.

  We note and share the Government's serious concerns over the proposed Regulation's conformity with the principle of subsidiarity; its potential conflicts with existing legislation and its potential impact on the insurance industry.

  We look forward to receiving a supplementary Explanatory Memorandum with a Regulatory Impact Assessment when the details of the Proposal are clearer, and would be grateful for news of any significant developments in negotiations on this important dossier.

  We will maintain scrutiny on this proposal at this stage.

25 April 2006
