Safety rules and standards for passenger ships (A8-0167/2017 - Daniela Aiuto)

  Lucy Anderson (S&D). – Madam President, in contrast to some of the bizarre views just expressed on the other side of the Chamber, this is a very important update to passenger ship safety laws. It is quite a technical measure but it is very important. The main purpose of these laws must be to ensure that passengers and crew can travel safely on board passenger ships and boats in the EU.

This simplification should help to ensure improved implementation, monitoring and enforcement of the rules, and it should therefore be supported. However, it is important that passenger confidence is maintained and that penalties for breaches of the national provisions adopted will be adequate and enforced. Some of my amendments and the amendments of colleagues have ensured that. The final text moves in the right direction in these respects. It is absolutely worth voting for, and I am glad that I did so.
