Joint Committee on Statutory Instruments Ninth Report


APPENDIX 4

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

HARBOUR WORKS (ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT) REGULATIONS 1999 (S.I. 1999/3445)

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

(1)  In regulation 8(4) and paragraph 16(4) of new Schedule 3 (as substituted by Schedule 3) is the reference to paragraph and sub-paragraph "(2)(a)" intended to be a reference to "(2)(b)"?

(2)  Regulation 14(2) makes it an offence for a person to fail without reasonable notice to comply with a notice served upon him under regulation 11(1) or 12(1). Is the reference to regulation 12(1) intended to be a reference to regulation 13(1)?

  2. The Department accepts that on point (1) the reference to paragraph and sub-paragraph "(2)(a)" should have been to "(2)(b)", and that on point (2) the reference to regulation 12(1) should have been to regulation 13(1). The Department apologises for these errors, and is drafting amending Regulations, which will be made as soon as possible and issued free of charge to all known recipients of the Regulations.
