Memorandum by the Department
of the Environment, Transport and the Regions
1. The Committee has asked for
a memorandum on the following point :
Regulation 11(3) prohibits persons
from doing specified dishonest acts in relation to surveys and
certificates of compliance of fishing vessels under the Regulations.
Explain why the Regulations do not make it an offence for a person
to do any of the prohibited acts.
2. The Department apologises
for the error which will be rectified by the Merchant Shipping
(Radio) (Fishing Vessels) Regulations 1999 to be made very shortly.
