Version Superseded: 16/08/2006
There are outstanding changes not yet made by the legislation.gov.uk editorial team to Harbours, Docks and Piers Clauses Act 1847. Any changes that have already been made by the team appear in the content and are referenced with annotations.
Changes and effects yet to be applied by the editorial team are only applicable when viewing the latest version or prospective version of legislation. They are therefore not accessible when viewing legislation as at a specific point in time. To view the ‘Changes to Legislation’ information for this provision return to the latest version view using the options provided in the ‘What Version’ box above.
Any two justices may appoint such persons as shall be nominated for that purpose by the undertakers to be special constables within the limits of the harbour, dock, pier, and premises of the undertakers, and within one mile of the same; and every person so appointed shall be sworn in by any such justices duly to execute the office of a constable within the limits aforesaid, and when so sworn in shall have the same powers, protections, and privileges within the limits aforesaid, and shall be subject to the same liabilities, as constables have or are subject to by the laws of the realm.
