EXPLANATORY NOTE

EXPLANATORY NOTE (This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend the Merchant Shipping (Light Dues) Regulations 1997 by substituting a lower figure (41p instead of 43p) for the rate at which light dues are payable for any one voyage by a ship which ends at a port or place in the United Kingdom on or after 1st April 2010 (regulation 2(a)). Regulation 2(b) makes a corresponding downward adjustment in the maximum amount payable for any one voyage.
