Brexit and shipping

An excellent sober summing-up of the legal prospects for UK shipping after Brexit from Toby Stephens at HFW, addressing the UK Chamber of Shipping. Possible improvements noted include freedom from state aid regulation allowing us to attract tonnage here; the possibility of freeing P&I Clubs from the stifling effect of Solvency II; the ability to scrap ships other than in places approved by the EU Commission, and freedom from the Ports and Services debacle. But it’s all worth watching. Video here or here.
