§ Mr. Win Griffiths
The issues raised by the use of jet skis are currently being considered as part of an interdepartmental review of by law powers for the coast. A discussion paper was issued for consultation in Wales in February 1997 in parallel was a similar exercise in England. The responses to these exercises are being taken into account by an Interdepartmental Working Party which will provide advice to Ministers. The Coastguard Agency is leading further work specifically to analyse the problems and identify solutions for dealing with personal watercraft, involving the Marine Safety Agency and relevant Departments.
