What recent discussions there have been with the Dutch Government about the preservation of the wreck of the "Amsterdam" at Hastings. [HL887]

The Department for Culture,58WA Media and Sport has asked the Dutch Government's Cultural Heritage Department to keep it informed of any proposals they may have for the site.
