Memorandum from the Department for Transport
2002 (S.I. 2002/2055)
1. The Joint Committee on Statutory Instruments has
asked the Department to submit a memorandum on the following point:
Regulation 2(1) contains, in the definition of
"pleasure vessel", a definition of "immediate family".
Explain the meaning of "a relative" in the latter and
why the corresponding definition in regulation 2(1) of S.I. 2002/2125
does not include relatives.
2. The intended meaning of "a relative"
is a brother, sister, ancestor or lineal descendant of an individual
or the husband or wife of that individual. The corresponding definition
in regulation 2(1) of S.I. 2002/2125 accurately conveys the intended
meaning. The words "and a relative of the individual or the
individual's husband or wife" were erroneously included in
3. The Department apologises for this error and will
amend the Regulations as soon as possible.
