Parliamentary questions

E-001826-14
Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 117
Catherine Bearder (ALDE)

 Subject:  CCTV on ferries
 Answer(s) 

On 20 May 2013, one of my constituents, Richard Fearnside, died whilst on the P&O Pride of Kent ferry.

I understand that Richard went for a cigarette on deck but never returned. Both the ship and surrounding waters were searched, but he was not found. His parents and the authorities do not know what happened to Richard as there were no CCTV cameras installed on the deck of the ferry.

In light of this, will the Commission consider taking action to ensure that all ferries operating within the European Union are required to install CCTV cameras on open decks?
