Follow this EDM by:


That this House notes the good work done by the Paddle Steamer Preservation Society in safeguarding the only paddle steamer left in the world, Paddle Steamer Waverley; further notes the engineering and sea-going heritage that the paddle steamer represents and its being a symbol of an historic age; recognises its importance to the British tourist industry, as something which travels across much of the British coastline and raises the great British community spirit; further recognises the high costs of maintenance which, alongside increasing fuel costs, threaten the survival of this national asset; further notes that a motion insimilarterms has been tabled in the Scottish Parliament; and calls on the Government to take action securing support in Westminster, so that the only remaining paddle steamer, a treasured part of the UK's heritage, is not lost forever.
