(2)But where a person has made a request under this section in respect of a specification, no further request may be made under this section by that person or any other person in respect of that specification unless the grounds on which the further request is made are or include that there is a significant matter which has not previously been considered by the Minister.

(3)On a request under this section the Minister must decide whether to revoke the specification or to take no action with respect to it (but see section 26(3)).

(b)decide in the case of each such specification whether to revoke it or to take no action with respect to it (but see section 26(3)).

(3)For the purposes of this section each of the following is a “review period”—

(a)the period of 3 years beginning with the date when the regulations are made, and

(b)each period of 3 years that begins with the date of completion of a review under this section of specifications made under the regulations.

(2)Any person affected by that provision may request the Secretary of State to use the Secretary of State’s best endeavours to secure that a ship so designated ceases to be designated for any purposes of the Resolution.

(3)But where a person has made a request under this section in respect of the designation of a ship, no further request may be made under this section by that person or any other person in respect of that designation unless the grounds on which the further request is made are or include that there is a significant matter which has not previously been considered by the Secretary of State.
