HC Deb 15 January 1964 vol 687 c27W
40. Sir G. Nabarro

asked the Minister of Transport if he will introduce legislation to require foreign vessels, when carrying passengers and/or freight from a United Kingdom port, to possess British safety certificates, or the recognised Commonwealth or foreign equivalent, and to be seen to possess such certificates on all relevant marine documents, including passenger tickets.

Vice-Admiral Hughes Hallett

This is already the law, for practical purposes. No ship, British or foreign, can leave a British port on an international voyage without a certificate that it complies with internationally approved standards.
