Mr. Jim Cunningham: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what steps the Government have taken to protect military shipwrecks as final resting places.

Derek Twigg: The Protection of Military Remains Act (PMRA) 1986* allows the MOD to protect the remains of aircraft and ships lost while in military service from unauthorised interference. The latest tranche of wrecks designated under the Act will come into force on 1 May 2008, raising the total number of designations to 58.
