APPENDIX VI

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

MERCHANT SHIPPING (FIRE PROTECTION) (AMENDMENT) REGULATIONS 1999 (S.I. 1999/992)

  1. The Committee has requested a memorandum on the following points:

      (1) Verify the reference in regulation 4(a) to "sub-paragraph (2)" of regulation 2 the 1998 Regulations. Ought this not to be a reference to "paragraph (1)" of regulation 2 of those Regulations?

    Yes.

      (2) As respects the provisions of regulation 25 of the 1998 Regulations substituted by regulation 8, verify the reference in paragraph (4) to "Each outfit referred to in paragraph (1) or (2) above". Should this not be a reference to "each outfit referred to in paragraph (1) or (3) above"?

    Yes.

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

4 May 1999
