Shetland Petition On Shipping Safety

EDM number 1626 in 1992-93, proposed by James Wallace on 17/03/1993.

That this house notes with approval that a petition subscribed by almost 6,000 Shetlanders, and presented to the Minister for Aviation and Shipping on 17th March, calls for a range of measures relating to shipping safety, including tanker routing measures to protect vulnerable coasts, proper monitoring of tanker movements around British shores, the implementation of a global strategy for the safe management of tankers and their crews and a full and open inquiry into the grounding of the 'Braer' on Shetland on 5th January; profoundly regrets the Government's rejection of calls for a formal investigation under the merchant shipping legislation; and, believing that justice must not only be done but must be seen to be done, calls on the Secretary of State for Transport to have proper regard for the publicly expressed will of so many Shetlanders and to reverse his decision not to establish a formal investigation by a sheriff into the grounding of the 'Braer'.

This motion has been signed by a total of 81 MPs.
