§ Mr. Clinton Davis
The establishment of the Interdepartmental Committee on Marine Safety under my Department's chairmanship was announced by the Prime Minister on 30th July 1976. The Committee has recently submitted its first report, which covers its work for the period to the end of 1977, and I have arranged for copies to be placed in the Library.
