EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order revokes a series of Orders specifying a number of exemptions from the requirement under section 5 of the Gas Act 1986 to hold a licence for the transportation, supply and shipping of gas. The exemptions were time limited (the time limits applying to the exemptions granted by an Order are contained in the relevant Order) and most expired on 1st March 2011. However the exemptions in the Gas Act 1986 (Exemptions) (No. 4) Order 1996 were originally to expire on 30th November 1999, but were extended first until 31st December 2000 by the Gas Act 1986 (Exemptions) (No. 4) (Amendment) Order 1999, and then until 1st March 2011 by the Gas Act 1986 (Exemptions) (No. 4) (Amendment) Order 2000; while the exemptions in the Gas Act 1986 (Exemptions) (No. 3) Order 1996 expired on 30th November 1996. The exemptions contained in the Orders listed in the Schedule are spent, and the Orders are revoked as being no longer necessary.

An impact assessment has not been produced for this instrument as no impact is foreseen on the private, voluntary or public sectors.

(1)

1986 c. 44. Section 6A was inserted by section 2 of the Gas (Exempt Supplies) Act 1993 (c. 1), substituted by section 4 of the Gas Act 1995 (c. 45), and amended by sections 3, 86 and 108 of, and Schedule 8 to, the Utilities Act 2000 (c. 27), section 149 of the Energy Act 2004 (c. 20) and S.I. 2012/2400.

(2)

1995 c. 45. The power conferred by paragraph 17(2) of Schedule 5 enabled the Secretary of State to disapply the saving in paragraph 17(1) of that Schedule for authorisations granted under section 8 of the Gas Act 1986 in certain specified circumstances. A provision in one of the instruments revoked by the Schedule to this Order was made in exercise of this power (see article 21 of S.I. 1996/449).
