To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what awareness activities the Maritime and Coastguard Agency has undertaken among (a) UK shipowners, (b) owners of UK flagged vessels and (c) the European shipping industry on regulations under Part 5 of the Equality Act 2010 to prevent differential pay rates for seafarers from countries in the European Economic Area since 1 August 2011.

Part 6 of the Equality Act 2010 is not a responsibility of the Maritime and Coastguard Agency and it has not undertaken awareness activities since 1 August 2011.

The Agency has, however, used its UK Ship Register newsletter, in 2009 and early in 2011, to draw attention generally to the provisions of the Equality Act.
