Memorandum by the Department
of the Environment, Transport and the Regions
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
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?
Both these errors are regretted,
and will be corrected at the first convenient opportunity.
