This chapter examines the development in the policy for ports and shipping in Great Britain since 1998. It explains that the White Paper A New Deal for Transport focused only briefly on ports and shipping compared with other segments of the transport sector. The chapter provides an overview of the British port system's scale, complexity, and momentum, and evaluates whether there is evidence that ports and their associated shipping have entered a new era in which economic growth has been maintained without a high environmental cost.

Keywords:   ports, shipping, Great Britain, transport policy, New Deal, economic growth, environmental cost
