Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)
This Order further amends the Hovercraft (Application of Enactments) Order 1972.
Article 2(2) revokes article 7 of the 1972 Order in consequence of superseding provision contained in the Insurance Companies Act 1982 (c. 50).
Article 2(3) amends article 8 of the 1972 Order (which applies to hovercraft certain enactments and instruments relating to, among other things, the salvage of ships). The amendments in article 2(3)(a), (b) and (d) are consequential on the Merchant Shipping (Salvage and Pollution) Act 1994 (c. 28), section 1 and Schedule 1; which since 1st January 1995 (their coming into force date) have made new provision in respect of the salvage of ships, craft, structures capable of navigation, and other property.
The amendments in article 2(3)(c) replace references to two instruments which have been revoked with references to the instruments which have replaced them.

1968 c. 59.

Section 1(1)(h) was amended by the Supreme Court Act 1981 (c. 54), section 152(1) and Schedule 5, and extended by the Merchant Shipping Act 1979 (c. 39), section 48.
