HC Deb 13 June 1996 vol 279 cc230-1W
Mr. Allason

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if entries on the British register of shipping indicate fully(a) the ownership of a vessel and (b) those with a title to the vessel. [32227]

Mr. Norris

The register of British ships records legal ownership. Title proof is required in respect of merchant ships and pleasure vessels on part I of the register, and of fishing vessels with full registration on part II of the register. Title proof is not required on part III—small ships—part IV—bareboat charter ships—or for fishing vessels with simple registration on part II of the register.
