The Chief Port Health Inspector wishes to place on record his condolences and sympathy to the family of Councillor Ken Turner who sadly passed away on 24 April 2018.
Councillor Turner, of Hull City Council, had served on the Board of HGPHA for many years and brought with him his vast experience of caring for seafarers and seeking to improve conditions on board ships, a central aim of this Authority.
Prior to his membership of the Authority the Chief Port Health Inspector knew him well in his important and well-respected role with the National Union of Seamen.
The Board also wish to record their condolences and thanks for his commitment and much valued support to the work of the Authority.

Following the UK referendum decision of 23 June 2016 to leave the EU we await further clarity on the implications and changes to the UK legal framework under which we work.
For example, the control of imported food is based on EU legislation. It is not yet clear how this may change. We are informed that any changes will be subject to a lengthy consultation period. For the forseeable future the current EU based UK legislation remains in force.
