Good post

Bloody hell - the inmates would be running the asylum - can you image the "laws" they would make up to ban leisure activity.

Good on the RYA - they need our support - register your view

Bit of a "storm in a tea cup" if you ask me......

Im quite familliar with the bill as the pilotage ammendment generally apply to us (unless im missing something which i dont think i am)

The bill states that Harbour Authorities will have the power to "make directions" meaning that they can set rules concerning the use of the harbour/port.

The Following is Copy/Pasted from the bill

40A Directions
(1) A designated harbour authority may give directions (“harbour directions”) in respect of ships—
(a) within their harbour, or
(b) entering or leaving their harbour.


(2) A harbour direction may relate to—
(a) the movement of ships;
(b) mooring or unmooring;

(c) equipment (including nature and use);

(d) the manning of ships.

A set proceedure must be followed before any harbour direction can be introduced:

(1) Harbour directions must be in writing.
(2) Before giving harbour directions a harbour authority must consult such
representatives of users of the harbour as the authority think
appropriate.
(3) A harbour authority must make such arrangements as they think
appropriate for publicising a proposed harbour direction for at least 28
days before it is given.
(4) A harbour authority must—
(a) make harbour directions available for inspection, and
(b) supply a copy to anyone who requests it.
(5) A harbour authority may charge for the supply of copies.
(6) As soon as is reasonably practicable after giving a harbour direction the harbour authority must publish a notice in a newspaper specialising in
shipping news—
(a) stating that a harbour direction has been given, and
(b) giving details of the arrangements for the inspection and supply
of copies of harbour directions.


I personally feel the RYA are scaremongering as i really dont see that this bill will have any dramatic effect on boating life as we know it.

Simon

I think the issue is related to Harbour Authorities being able to criminalise misdemeanour and behaviour that they deem to be misdemeanour without any recourse to the law as it stands.
Essentially they allow themselves to call the law where it doesn't exist and as a result there is no defence to that calling.
I'd stand against that.
Trivial or not.
