Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)
This Order revokes the Food Protection (Emergency Prohibitions) (Oil and Chemical Pollution of Fish) (No.2) Order 1993 insofar as it applies to scallops and queen scallops.
The 1993 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 mussels and Norway lobsters.
