§ Sir Cranley Onslow
To ask the Secretary of State for National Heritage what assessment she has made as to whether the Protection of Wrecks (Designation No. 3) Order 1974 in respect of the site of the vessel Amsterdam is being adequately enforced. 
§ Mr. Sproat
[holding answer 13 July 1995]: The Amsterdam is inspected as part of a rolling programme of regular monitoring of designated wreck sites by the archaeological diving unit under contract to the Department of National Heritage. The ADU plans to visit the site next month. Following its previous visit in 1991, it concluded that there was no evidence to suggest unauthorised interference.
