Shipping Minister meets the Lighthouse Service
Trinity House welcomed The Rt Hon John Hayes to its Harwich (England, East Coast) depot on 23 February 2017, visiting in his capacity as the Minister of State for Transport, the Shipping Minister.
This visit served to familiarise the Minister with the functions and operations of Trinity House – specifically in its role as a General Lighthouse Authority – highlighting risk in UK waters and the Service’s ability to respond to that risk. He was able to take a close look at operational delivery and technological innovation.
With presentations by Trinity House executives and staff, Hayes’ visit also included the modern Planning Centre from which Trinity House operates and monitors its aids to marine navigation.
