Draft Maritime Transport Access to Trade and Cabotage (Revocation) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 — 30 Jan 2019 at 16:28

The majority of MPs voted to revoke a series of European Union regulations relating to shipping, including removing a right for ships registered in the European Union to provide transport services within the United Kingdom.

The motion supported by the majority of MPs in this vote was:

The regulations:

  • Remove a right of "cabotage" (the right operate transport services within a country) from ship owners based in the European Union. Note "within" is a key word, this doesn't appear to relate to international transport services.
  • Remove references to rights to transport people and goods on the Rhine from UK legislation as the rights will be lost on withdrawal from the European Union.
  • Revoke a reciprocal regime enabling ships to be easily transferred between registers of European Union member States
  • Revoke arrangements for information collection on activities of fleets from third countries whose practices are harmful to shipping interests of member States and arrangements for countermeasures against anti-competitive action.
  • Revoke arrangements to tackle unfair pricing in the shipping industry.
