star this property answer text <p>I have received several representations from unions on staff being paid less than the Minimum Wage on ferries operating from the UK on specific routes, including those being operated by UK registered operators. The vessels are operating domestic and international destinations. Where specific vessels have been referenced by the unions these were not registered on the UK ship register.</p><p> </p><p>The current legislation applies to all seafarers working in the UK internal waters and who is a worker as per the definition in the National Minimum Wage Act 1998. It also applies to those working outside the internal waters if they are working on a UK registered vessel and are ordinarily resident in the UK and some of their work is in the UK. Seafarers who are not resident in the UK and are working outside the UK internal waters are not covered by the legislation. The proposed amendments will extend the protections of the National Minimum Wage Act to all seafarers working domestically in the UK territorial waters on all vessels.</p><p> </p><p>If a seafarer is entitled to the Minimum Wage than this should be raised immediately with the HMRC enforcement team. Every complaint made is considered by HMRC for investigation.</p><p> </p>

Number plate offences are also included in the Home Office’s fixed penalty system. This provides the police with a practical and effective means of enforcement.

star this property answer text <p>The Clean Maritime Plan, published earlier this month, sets out a route map for zero emission shipping in the UK. Alongside the Clean Maritime Plan, the Government published research setting out some of challenges around increasing uptake of electric charging. As noted in this research, capital expenditure costs associated with electric charging berths will vary greatly. They may be influenced by, for instance, the size of the vessels being plugged in, the existing grid infrastructure, and the layout of port infrastructure. The Government believes that electric charging will have a role to play in reducing emissions from UK shipping, and will continue to work with the ports and shipping industries, the Clean Maritime Council, and the National Grid to better understand the opportunities for shoreside power.</p><p> </p> more like this
