That this House notes with profound concern that the number of ships owned and registered in the United Kingdom has slumped from 1,614 in 1975 to just 300 today; and believes that positive and urgent action is required in order to maintain for strategic reasons the size, quality and diversity of the United Kingdom's merchant fleet.

This motion has been signed by a total of 43 MPs, 2 of these signatures have been withdrawn.
