EXPLANATORY NOTE

This order varies the Molluscan Shellfish (Control of Deposit) Order 1974 by substituting a new Schedule setting out areas of tidal water within the seaward limits of the territorial waters adjacent to England and Wales designated for the purposes of the order.

In the new Schedule:—

(a)area 8 (Landguard Point, Felixstowe to Barge Pier, Shoeburyness) is subdivided into three areas; area 8a (Landguard Point, Felixstowe to Clacton Pier), area 8b (Clacton Pier to Grange Outfall) and area 8c (Grange Outfall to Barge Pier, Shoeburyness);

(b)area 12 (Selsey Bill to the Bill of Portland) is subdivided into two areas: area 12a (Selsey Bill to the Needles Lighthouse) and area 12b (the Needles Lighthouse to the Bill of Portland);

(c)area 14 (Start Point to the Lizard Lighthouse) is subdivided into three areas: area 14a (Start Point to Pencarrow Head), area 14b (Pencarrow Head to Dodman Point) and area 14c (Dodman Point to the Lizard Lighthouse).

The Molluscan Shellfish (Control of Deposit) Order 1974 prohibits the deposit in any designated area of molluscan shellfish taken from a shellfish bed outside that area except in accordance with a licence granted by the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food or the Secretary of State for Wales, as the case may be.

The 1974 Order also designates certain land adjacent to the designated waters; and by virtue of section 12(3) of the Sea Fisheries (Shellfish) Act 1967 the prohibition on the deposit of molluscan shellfish in the designated areas of water applies also to the deposit of molluscan shellfish on that land.
