HC Deb 18 March 1985 vol 75 c370W
22. Mr. Kennedy

asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he will report on progress towards specifying designated routes for large crude oil carrying tankers west of the Hebrides and clear of the Minch; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. David Mitchell

I understand that when new editions of the principal charts of the area are published later this year, the Hydrographer of the Navy intends to have marked on them the exact limits of the area now surveyed to modern standards and to include a note stating that deep draught vessels should keep within that area if possible.
