Joint Committee on Statutory Instruments Twentieth Report

Appendix 1

S.I. 2003/777: memorandum from the Department for Transport

Air Navigation (Amendment) Order 2003 (S.I. 2003/777)

1. By a letter dated 6 May 2003, the Committee sought a Memorandum on the following point:

Verify the reference, in article 6, to "Schedule 8 Part A Section3", given that Part A of Schedule 8 to the 2000 Order (as amended by the instrument cited in footnote (b) at page1) does not contain that Section, nor any entry relating to the privileges and conditions of the National Private Pilot's Licence (Aeroplanes).

2. Section 3 of Part A of Schedule 8 was inserted into the Air Navigation Order 2000 by the Air Navigation (Amendment) (No2) Order 2002 (S.I. 2002/1628). A reference to that amending instrument ought to have been included in footnote (b) at page 1. Consequently the reference in article 6 of the Order is correct but the footnote is not. Remedial steps to correct this error have been taken. We have contacted the Department's statutory instrument support team for the purposes of ensuring that the correct footnote reference is contained in both the statutory instruments annual volume and on the HMSO website. For the avoidance of doubt the Department will arrange with HMSO for a correction slip to be printed and issued free of charge to those who have already bought or who subsequently buy the inaccurate Order. The omission of the correct footnote in the original Order is deeply regretted.
