The Department has not made an assessment of the potential effects of Irish Ferries’ planned operation of cross-Channel ferry services on the terms and conditions of employment of UK seafarers on those services. The Dover-Calais route is an international route, the vessel that Irish Ferries are bringing to the route is currently registered with Cyprus and subject to Cypriot law.
