The Fisheries (Amendment) (Northern Ireland) Order 1991


This is the original version (as it was originally made).

Fishery Conservation Officers

24.—(1) Water bailiffs shall, instead of being so called, be called fishery conservation officers; and accordingly—

(a)any enactment or instrument passed or made before the commencement of this Article, shall have effect so far as may be necessary in consequence of the change of title made by this Article, as if for any reference to a water bailiff there were substituted a reference to a fishery conservation officer; and

(b)documents and forms printed or duplicated for use in connection with functions of water bailiffs may be used notwithstanding that they contain references to such bailiffs and those references shall be construed as references to fishery conservation officers.

(2) In paragraph (1) “water bailiffs” means water bailiffs appointed by the Fisheries Conservancy Board.
