§ Mr. Eyre
Subject to further advice from the Pilotage Commission when it meets later this week, it is hoped to activate almost all of the remaining pilotage provisions of the Merchant Shipping Act 1979 on 1 July, including those relating to pilotage certificates for EEC nationals. Detailed implementation of these provisions is the responsibility of the local pilotage authorities and the Pilotage Commission.
