Design Failures Of Bulk Carriers

EDM number 1624 in 1992-93, proposed by Eddie Loyden on 16/03/1993.

That this House expresses its serious concern at the reported loss of the vessel 'Gold Bond Conveyor' and extends its sympathy to the families of the 33 crew members reported to be drowned; notes that the MV 'Gold Bond Conveyor' is a bulk carrier similar in design to the MV 'Derbyshire' that sank with the loss of its 44 crew members in the South China Sea in 1980; draws the attention of the Secretary of State for Transport to the number of bulk carriers that have suffered a similar fate that points to a design/structural fault in these ships; and demands that an inquiry into the loss of the 'Derbyshire' should be undertaken to avoid further loss of seafarers' lives.

This motion has been signed by a total of 73 MPs.
