  Rupert Matthews (ECR ). – Madam President, some years ago I wrote a book about the wreck of RMS Titanic . That terrible night showed all too clearly the consequences of not enforcing safety rules at sea.

These rules that we have passed today bring the European Union into line with the International Maritime Organisation, a branch of the United Nations which is based in London, a great maritime city with a seagoing heritage reaching back more than 2 000 years. That is a reminder that in many areas of international relations it is not the European Union that calls the shots, but other international organisations, and that Britain is already a member of many of those organisations. This is just another reason why I believe Brexit is going to be a great success.
