Bankruptcy and Diligence etc. (Scotland) Act 2007

New section 47D – Arrestment of cargo: restriction on movement of ship

795.Section 47D has the effect that where cargo on board a ship is arrested, the ship is itself treated as if it has been arrested until the cargo is taken off the ship. The ship is therefore prevented from setting sail and the creditor can apply for ancillary warrants to dismantle the ship or have it brought into harbour providing it can be shown that this course of action is necessary.
