Motion text

That this House believes that as an island nation Britain needs maritime skills and expertise; that the United Kingdom at present faces a critical shortage of recruits into the maritime industry and as a result there is an over-reliance upon flag of convenience shipping which brings with it risks of poorer working conditions and safety procedures; congratulates the Union NUMAST on its current campaign highlighting these issues; and calls on Her Majesty's Government to introduce measures designed to improve recruitment and working conditions onboard all the ships using our ports and waters.
