He's been on assignment with the London Mayor, Boris Johnson.

:00:00.:00:08.

A Hull MP says new rules ailed at reducing pollution in the shipping

:00:09.:00:12.

industry could cost jobs and lead to drivers paying more at the pumps.

:00:13.:00:17.

Ferry companies have been told to use more expensive fuel which has

:00:18.:00:21.

less sulphur in it, but thex're worried about the extra cost.

:00:22.:00:24.

Hull East MP Karl Turner agrees and wants the government to act

:00:25.:00:29.

Our political editor Tim Irddale reports.

:00:30.:00:33.

Like all forms of transport, the shipping industry is under

:00:34.:00:36.

pressure to become cleaner, greener and more efficient.

:00:37.:00:41.

But according to one Hull MP, ferry operators, such as P, will soon be

:00:42.:00:45.

hit by expensive regulations which will force them to change the fuel

:00:46.:00:50.

They're going to have to pass it on somehow.

:00:51.:00:56.

They're not going to be able to swallow that cost.

:00:57.:00:58.

They're either going to havd to make a decision and cancel

:00:59.:01:01.

International rules mean th`t the sulphur content of fuel

:01:02.:01:08.

The shipping industry claims that switching to lighter, marind diesel

:01:09.:01:13.

And they are warning of up to 2000 job losses across the TK.

:01:14.:01:23.

I would like the government to show a little

:01:24.:01:25.

bit of leadership here now, and to lobby the EU to allow a transition

:01:26.:01:29.

period, a route to compliance, as was envisaged by the

:01:30.:01:31.

The industry even claims motorists could pay up to 3p a litre lore

:01:32.:01:37.

for diesel because of the extra pressure put on refineries.

:01:38.:01:41.

Something that shocked drivdrs in Hull today.

:01:42.:01:46.

Drivers won't pay 3p a litre more for any reason,

:01:47.:01:49.

Yes, I am worried about that, and it will make a big dent

:01:50.:01:53.

in our family income because we travel across thd

:01:54.:01:55.

The government has hit back at claims that it's not doing enough

:01:56.:02:00.

Ministers say they are workhng with Europe to look at ways

:02:01.:02:06.

of providing finance for shipping firms and ports.

:02:07.:02:11.

It's not an announcement th`t happened today, yesterday,

:02:12.:02:13.

This is something the industry has had over shx years

:02:14.:02:18.

Extra fuel costs was one of the reasons given

:02:19.:02:24.

for the scrapping of the Harwich to Denmark ferry service.

:02:25.:02:27.

Many hope Hull's ferry routds don't suffer a similar fate.

:02:28.:02:36.

Is there any chance of the government making

:02:37.:02:40.

Not for the first time, thex will argue their hands are tied by

:02:41.:02:50.

regulations. The shipping industry wants to equip new technology on

:02:51.:02:57.

their older vessels. Many whll argue that what will happen if thd east

:02:58.:03:02.

coast ferry routes are cut back or even closed, worst case scenario,

:03:03.:03:06.

traffic will get on the roads, driving south to the Channel ports,

:03:07.:03:11.

creating congestion. And pollution, which is what they are trying to

:03:12.:03:13.

stop. Thank you.

:03:14.:03:15.

This evening I spoke to Jamds Cole from the environmental pressure

:03:16.:03:17.

I asked him why making ferrhes use more expensive fuel was a good

:03:18.:03:22.

idea if it led to lorries h`ving to travel further to get to ports.

:03:23.:03:27.

I think what we are hearing and what you are saying is that the

:03:28.:03:34.

government needs to look at reducing the impact of all modes of

:03:35.:03:38.

transport, and we need to look at how we transition to a lower impact

:03:39.:03:41.

economy in the best possibld way. What's more important dash of ferry

:03:42.:03:47.

sailing or ferry sailing behng lost, and jobs, or reducing sulphur

:03:48.:03:53.

emissions? That is not a fahr question. That is the questhon on

:03:54.:03:59.

the table at the moment, isn't it? We have to look at the big picture.

:04:00.:04:03.

In the big picture, we don't have a choice of moving to know a `` of

:04:04.:04:12.

moving to a low impact economy. We have one planet of limited

:04:13.:04:15.

resources. If we are to thrhve and have an economy that thrives with

:04:16.:04:19.

businesses that thrive, it's not whether we can afford to make a

:04:20.:04:23.

change, it is if we can afford not to. We will follow that story.

:04:24.:04:26.

East Yorkshire has one of the highest number of convictions

:04:27.:04:28.

74 people were convicted in the county last year,

:04:29.:04:32.

the fifth highest in the UK and higher than Greater Manchester.

:04:33.:04:34.

There are now calls for tougher punishments to deter abusers.

:04:35.:04:41.

Concerns about allegations of bullying and harassment

:04:42.:04:43.

at the Hull and East Yorkshhre Hospitals Trust have been dhscussed

:04:44.:04:46.

Shortly after the former Chief Executive Phil Morley resigned

:04:47.:04:49.

in April, a health watchdog published a highly critical report.

:04:50.:04:53.

There are also worries about staff morale and recrtitment.

:04:54.:04:57.

The head of the trust meets councillors tomorrow.

:04:58.:05:02.

The debts facing Lincolnshire's hospitals are among the highest

:05:03.:05:04.

Figures from the Labour Party suggest the United Lincolnshire

:05:05.:05:08.

Hospitals Trust has a deficht of nearly ?26 million.

:05:09.:05:13.

A five year plan's being developed to help the Trust meet

:05:14.:05:15.

The Environment Secretary h`s defended the government's rdcord

:05:16.:05:21.

on flood protection following criticism by a committee of MPs

:05:22.:05:26.

Owen Paterson spoke to farmdrs at the Lincolnshire Show who had

:05:27.:05:31.

expressed concern about sea defences.

:05:32.:05:32.

He also rejected claims by ` select committee that his department wasn't

:05:33.:05:35.

doing enough to protect comlunities at risk of flooding.

:05:36.:05:45.

The report attacked us for `sking to do things which we are alre`dy

:05:46.:05:52.

doing. We are spending a record sum of money. There is no one w`rrant as

:05:53.:05:55.

elastic behind these flood defences. There is no one that sees

:05:56.:05:59.

the economic value of protecting high quality agricultural l`nd. That
