Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)
This Order revokes the Food Protection (Emergency Prohibitions) (Oil and Chemical Pollution of Fish) Order 1997 insofar as it applies to round fish.
That Order contains emergency prohibitions restricting various activities in order to prevent human consumption of food rendered unsuitable for that purpose by virtue of fish and shellfish having been affected by oil and other chemical pollutants. The prohibitions in that Order will remain in place for flatfish and shellfish.
