Joint Committee on Statutory Instruments Forty-Eighth Report



APPENDIX IV

Memorandum by the Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions

MERCHANT SHIPPING (LOAD LINE) REGULATIONS 1998 (S.I.1998/2241)

The Committee asked for a memorandum on the following points:

    (1)  Regulation 19(1)(d) states that the Tropical Timber load line to be marked LT shall extend forward of the vertical line (which is itself 540mm aft of the centre of the ring) whereas Figure 4 shows the line LT as extending abaft the vertical line. Which is correct?

Figure 4 is correct; the text in 19(1)(d) is incorrect.

    (2)  In regulation 37(3), ought not the reference to proceedings under regulation 33 to be a reference to proceedings under regulation 35?

Yes.

Both these errors are regretted, and will be corrected at the first convenient opportunity.
