Motion text

That this House welcomes the call by the maritime workers' unions, RMT in the UK and SIPTU in Ireland, for an investigation into all ferry services trading in the Irish Sea; notes that an inspector from the International Transport Workers' Federation recently found Ukrainian, Polish and Russian workers on the Irish Sea on rates as low as two euros per hour; further notes that the minimum wage does not apply to workers operating in UK territorial waters; and therefore calls on the Government to extend minimum wage legislation to apply on all vessels operating in UK waters.
