      Kerry McCarthy (Bristol East, Labour)

      To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs pursuant to the answer of 4 December 2012, Official Report, column 753W, on British Overseas Territories, which of the Overseas Territories has the service of a patrol vessel capable of enforcement against illegal and unregulated fishing to the edge of their exclusive economic zone; and, in each such territory, on how many days enforcement has taken place in each of the last five years.



      Mark Simmonds (Boston and Skegness, Conservative)

      The Falklands Island Government has one such patrol vessel. Vessel deployments on enforcement operations for the last five years are as follows:
      Days
      2012 294
      2011 251
      2010 274
      2009 190
      2008 204

      The Government of South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands operates one such patrol vessel. Deployments over the last five years are as follows:
      Days
      2012 205
      2011 227
      2010 210
      2009 220
      2008 193

      The British Indian Ocean Territory has one such vessel which patrols the marine protected area. Enforcement deployments for the previous five years are:
      Days
      2012 204
      2011 207
      2010 259
      2009 240
      2008 204

      The Government of Grand Cayman has three vessels capable of enforcement against illegal, unreported and unregulated vessels. Patrols are carried out daily within a limited area.

      The Territories of Ascension Island, St Helena and Tristan da Cunha do not have the routine services of a patrol vessel. However, in 2010 a dedicated patrol vessel was deployed in these territories for 12 days, six days and nine days respectively.
