To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, Local Government and the Regions what assessment he has made of the new Humber pilotage service. 802W
§ Mr. Jamieson
A new pilotage service was introduced on the Humber on 12 December 2001 when the former pilots went on strike. My Department has closely monitored the new arrangements and I am placing in the Library a copy of a detailed report of that work. A copy will also be placed as soon as practicable on the Department's website.
