HC Deb 03 July 1978 vol 953 c50W
Mr. Peter Rees

asked the Secretary of State for Trade what further measures he proposes to tighten control of ships in the Straits of Dover.

Mr. Clinton Davis

Ships in the Dover Strait are already required to comply with the requirements of the traffic separation scheme. In consultation with the French Government, we are urgently examining further measures to improve the safety of navigation there, including reporting-in by certain vessels.
