HC Deb 25 July 2000 vol 354 c584W
Mrs. Brinton

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions what plans he has to take forward the recommendations of the Review of Byelaws for the Coast published in 1998. [132645]

Mr. Mullin

We shall implement the review's recommendations, which require legislation when parliamentary and other pressures permit. We have already published a voluntary code of best and safe practice for leisure craft users, and we are exploring options for a voluntary boat registration and identification scheme.
