To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs, what assessment he has made of the implications for his policies of the steps that cruise ship operators have taken to ensure that their vessels are covid-19 secure; and when he plans to issue advice to enable cruise ships to operate and travel agents to sell places on cruises again.
