Marine Conservation Bill — General objective — 27 Oct 2009 at 17:45

William McCrea MP, South Antrim voted in the minority (Aye).

The majority of MPs voted against a minor change in the wording of the General Objective of the Marine Management Organization, as outlined in the Marine Conservation Bill.[1]

The current version says:

  • The MMO is managed with the objective of making a contribution to the achievement of sustainable development...

The amendment, which was rejected, would have changed these words to:

  • The MMO is managed with the objective of furthering sustainable development...

The debate discussed many other issues.
