Scotland Bill — New Clause 3 — Devolution — Maritime and Coastguard Agency — 15 Mar 2011 at 18:30

Philip Dunne MP, Ludlow voted with the majority (Teller for the Noes).

The majority of MPs voted against devolving the powers relating to Scottish elements of the Maritime and Coastguard Agency to the Scottish Government.

MPs were considering the Scotland Bill[1]. The proposed new clause[2] rejected in this vote sought to treat the Maritime and Coastguard Agency as a Cross-Border Public Authority and devolve responsibilities relating to it to Scotland.

The proposed new clause included:

  • The funding, operation and planning authority of Maritime and Coastguard Agency facilities in Scotland shall reside with the Scottish Government and the appropriate Scottish Minister.
  • These parts of the Maritime and Coastguard Agency which are the responsibility of Scottish Government shall be known as the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (Scotland).
  • The Maritime and Coastguard Agency (Scotland) will be responsible for maintaining and upholding domestic and international laws and obligations in the Scottish Waters.
  • For the purposes of this section, the Scottish Waters are as defined by the Scottish Adjacent Waters Boundary Order 1999.
