HC Deb 16 November 1987 vol 122 c406W
Mr. David Evans

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport when he expects boarding passes to be introduced on ferries.

Mr. David Mitchell

My Department has recently issued for statutory consultation a draft Order that would require ferry companies to have boarding card systems in place by 1 February 1988. The actual date required will depend upon the consultation process and the time needed to prepare any amendments in the light of the comments received.
