DESPERATELY SEEKING ERIKA

SUBTITLE: THIS WEEK THE ERIKA II PACKAGE OF SAFETY RULES, FIRST AGREED IN THE WAKE OF THE 1999 SINKING, SHOULD ENTER INTO FORCE ACROSS EUROPE, REPORTS RICHARD MEADE. HOWEVER, ONLY A HANDFUL OF COUNTRIES STAND READY TO IMPLEMENT THE NEW REGIME AND SEVERAL HAVE STILL NOT EVEN MANAGED TO APPLY THE ERIKA I REGULATION. SO AS THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION PUTS THE FINAL TOUCHES TO ITS ERIKA III PACKAGE, MANY ARE ASKING IF EUROPE HAS LEARNT ANYTHING FROM ITS OBSESSION WITH MARINE SAFETY?
