To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, what steps he is taking to protect and enhance the marine environment.
Answer (Dr Thérèse Coffey)
Our vision is for our seas to be clean, safe, healthy, biologically diverse and productive. To achieve this we are working nationally and internationally to protect the marine environment. The UK demonstrated international leadership at the recent UN Ocean Conference and OSPAR Commission meeting. Marine protected areas around the UK and the Overseas Territories further demonstrate our commitment to protecting marine biodiversity.
