asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they support the European Union's second draft Ports Service Directive; and, if not, what changes they wish to be made. [HL1202]186WA
§ Lord Davies of Oldham
The UK Government support market liberalisation in the ports sector but believe that significant improvements are needed in many aspects of this draft proposal. We are currently consulting with the UK ports sector and other major stakeholders on the potential impact of this proposal before finalising a negotiating position.
