The Department has not made any formal assessment on the number of seafarer jobs that will be created in the UK from Irish Ferries planned operation of a Channel ferry service. It is understood that the provision of a third operator on the Dover-Calais route has resulted in a small number of new jobs in the Port of Dover.
