Section 34: Application of section 122 of the Railways Act 1993

98.Section 34 is designed to make the defence of statutory authority that is available under section 122 of the Railways Act 1993, and is relevant to actions for nuisance etc, available in circumstances where the licensing requirement under the 1993 Act does not apply because of section 24. This is necessary because section 122 only applies where the operator of the relevant railway asset has a licence, or the benefit of a licence exemption, under the 1993 Act.
