HC Deb 04 April 1989 vol 150 c21W
Mr. Sayeed

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport when he expects to receive the proposals from the Commission of the EEC for a second stage of European maritime policy; what time limit he has set for the production of such proposals; whether such proposals have yet been forwarded by the Commission to the Council; and if he will make representations to the Commission on the need for greater urgency in dealing with this matter.

Mr. Portillo

We continue to press the Commission. We understand that it aims to produce proposals for the June Council of Transport Ministers.
