Whereas the Secretary of State was of the opinion, as mentioned in section 1(1)(a) of the Food and Environment Protection Act 1985(1), that there existed or might have existed circumstances which were likely to create a hazard to human health through human consumption of food;
And whereas the Secretary of State was of the opinion, as mentioned in section 1(1)(b) of the said Act, that in consequence food which was derived or might have been in the future derived from fish and plants in the area described in the Schedule to the Food Protection (Emergency Prohibitions) (Oil and Chemical Pollution of Fish and Plants) Order 1996(2) was, or might have been, or might have become unsuitable for human consumption;
And whereas the Secretary of State is now of the opinion that no such circumstances exist which are likely to create a hazard to human health through human consumption of food and that in consequence such food is not and will not be or become unsuitable for human consumption;

Now, therefore, the Secretary of State in exercise of the powers conferred on him by section 1(1) and section 24(3) of the said Act, and of all other powers enabling him in that behalf hereby makes the following Order:—
