Protection Of Sea Birds From Tanker Discharges (No. 2)

EDM number 152 in 2013-14, proposed by Andrew George on 21/05/2013.
Categorised under the topics of Marine environment, Nature conservation, Pollution and Wildlife.

That this House welcomes the response of wildlife and UK shipping organisations to the recent pollution incident which resulted in the death and stranding of thousands of sea birds around the coast of Cornwall and Devon; believes that polyisobutylene (PIB) has no proper place in any quantity in our oceans and seas; and calls on the Government to conduct an urgent review of the legal classification status of PIB under the MARPOL convention, based on full consideration of environmental impacts, with a view towards reclassifying PIB to prohibit its discharge at sea altogether.

This motion has been signed by a total of 22 MPs.
