Joint Committee on Statutory Instruments Thirty-Ninth Report


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

RAILWAYS REGULATIONS 1998 (S.I. 1998/1340)

1.  The Committee have requested the Department to submit a memorandum on the following point:

    Regulation 21(2) amends the Railways Act 1993 by inserting a new subsection (1A) after "subsection (1)" but without identifying the section. Ought not the quoted words to have read "subsection (1) of section 6"?

2.  Yes. The words "of section 6" were omitted in error from regulation 21(2). The Department is advising Ministers to make an amending instrument inserting the words which will come into force on the same day as the Railways Regulations 1998 (27th June 1998). The amending instrument will be issued free of charge.

18th June 1998
