20

 

Clause  7,  page  6,  line  6,  leave out from ‘read,’ to ‘under’ in line 7 and insert ‘in

 

relation to the exercise by the MMO of functions’.

 

Member’s explanatory statement

 

The effect of this amendment would be that, in certain regulations, references to (or which include

 

a reference to) the Secretary of State would be read, in relation to the exercise of functions

 

anywhere by the MMO, as references to, or as including a reference to, the MMO instead.

 

Huw Irranca-Davies

 

21

 

Clause  21,  page  15,  line  1,  after ‘by’, insert ‘the MMO or’.

 

Member’s explanatory statement

 

This amendment would insert a reference to the MMO in clause 21(4) to ensure that Schedule 15

 

to the Deregulation and Contracting Out Act 1994 (restrictions on disclosure of information)

 

applies where the MMO authorises the performance of a function under clause 15 or clause 19(6).

 

Huw Irranca-Davies

This amendment would delete paragraphs 6 to 8 (amending the Fishery Limits Act 1976). These

 

provisions are redundant following a decision to deal with the issue in the transfer of functions

 

order that will be made to transfer fisheries functions in the Welsh zone to Welsh Ministers.

Clause  51,  page  29,  line  34,  leave out subsection (2) and insert—

 

‘(2)    

Where an MPS governs marine planning for a marine planning region, the marine

 

plan authority for the region must seek to ensure that every part of the region is

 

within an area for which a marine plan is in effect.’.

 

Member’s explanatory statement

 

The effect of this amendment would be to revise subsection (2) to make it clearer that each marine

 

plan authority must seek to ensure that one or more marine plans are in effect which, between

 

them, cover the whole of the authority’s region.

 

Huw Irranca-Davies

 

25

 

Clause  319,  page  223,  line  41,  leave out subsection (2).
