HC Deb 29 April 1959 vol 604 c123W
Mr. Cooper-Key

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation whether he is aware that Rye Bay is becoming a dangerous area by day and by night for fishing vessels by reason of increased traffic; and what steps he is taking to improve conditions.

Mr. Watkinson

During the last fifteen months one collision, into which a Preliminary Inquiry under Section 465 of the Merchant Shipping Act was held, and four near-collisions in this area have been reported. I am reminding all concerned, through their representative organisations, of their obligations under the Collision Regulations.
