That this House notes that the working time regulations Horizontal Amended Directive came into effect in August 2003 which extended the provision for four weeks' paid leave for offshore workers for the first time; is concerned that employers argue that the Directive does not apply beyond territorial waters, a 12-mile radius from the coastline, which accounts for about 99 per cent. of offshore installations; and calls on the Government to clarify or amend the legislation to ensure that all offshore workers enjoy paid leave.
