HC Deb 22 April 2002 vol 384 c41W
Mr. Lazarowicz

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, Local Government and the Regions what steps he is taking to ensure the enforcement and application of international conventions covering pay, conditions, welfare, social security and other rights of foreign seafarers on UK ships. [50575]

Mr. Jamieson

International conventions are applied to UK and foreign seafarers alike on UK ships, in line with our understanding of the requirements of those conventions and they are enforced accordingly. Social security issues are, however, a matter for the Department for Work and Pensions.
