Ship-to-ship oil transfers

A private members bill receives its second reading on 25th January. The bill will impose regulation on the practice of ship-to-ship oil transfers and thus help to protect seabirds from the catastrophic effects of oil spill. Please write to your MP and ask them to support this bill. I've written a letter (no great shakes but hopefully adequate) which you can find here. You're welcome to half inch it if you wish.

The RSPB page explaining this issue is here.

Thanks in advance for your support from WhitbyBirding.
