28. Mr. Laurance Reed

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he is satisfied with the traffic control arrangements in the English Channel.

Mr. Onslow

These have been and will be further improved. Last week agreement was reached with the French Government to set up a joint group of officials to co-ordinate planning for a Channel navigation information service and surveillance by radar and other means. A meeting of technical experts will be held next week and the group will hold its first meeting next month.
