Stand up for Shipping: UK Chamber of Shipping launches its 2019 election manifesto
The UK’s shipping association has launched its four-point plan for the 2019 General Election. In its ‘Stand up for Shipping’ manifesto, the Chamber calls for more investment to make the UK a world leader in green maritime technology and tax credits for companies who invest in research and development to help cement the UK as a world leading shipping nation.
We’ve been clear over the last few months that tackling climate change is a top priority for the UK Chamber of Shipping. We have argued for a Green Industrial Revolution and we want to see more hybrid ferries being used across shipping routes.
