27Amendment of welfare amenity schemes at the instance of other persons

(1)The Board may on the application of any person on whom any requirement is imposed by a welfare amenity scheme amend the scheme, so far as it affects the applicant, in accordance with the proposals specified in the application or with such modifications of those proposals as the Board thinks expedient, if the Board is satisfied that there has been a change of circumstances relating to the applicant or to the port to which the scheme relates since the scheme was made or since the scheme was last amended in some respect affecting the applicant.

(2)The Board shall give notice in writing of its decision on an application under the foregoing subsection to the applicant and to the Minister, stating, in the case of a refusal to amend the scheme or a decision to amend it with modifications of the proposals specified in the application, the reasons for its decision.

(3)If any person who has made an application under subsection (1) of this section is aggrieved by the decision of the Board on his application, he may appeal in the prescribed manner and within the prescribed time to the Minister who may make such decision in the matter as he thinks fit.

(4)The Minister shall give notice in writing- of any decision of his under the last foregoing subsection, together with the reasons therefor, to the Board who shall do all things necessary for giving effect to the decision and, in particular, shall give the applicant notice in writing of the decision and of those reasons.

(5)If the whole or part of a business or undertaking of a registered employer on whom requirements are imposed by a welfare amenity scheme is transferred from one person to another, the Board may on the application of the transferee amend the scheme by substituting references to him for references to the transferor.

(6)If an individual who is a registered employer dies, the Board may—

(a)on the application of the surviving partners if he was a partner in a firm ; and

(b)on the application of his legal personal representatives in that or any other case ;

amend the scheme by substituting references to the surviving partners or the legal personal representatives, as the case may be, for references to the deceased.
