There have not been any major objections to the clarification offered by the clause, but some questions have been raised. The explanatory note states:
''The same types of vessel will continue to be categorised as an offshore installations as now'',
and it gives the examples of offshore installations, jack-up drilling rigs—
I thank you, Mr. McWilliam; I have nearly finished. The courts have held that those vessels are currently not offshore installations. Confirmation is sought that vessels that the courts have said attract relief will continue to do so. However, as you pointed out, Mr. McWilliam, that is the schedule and not the clause.
Question put and agreed to.
Clause 136 ordered to stand part of the Bill.
Schedule 27 agreed to.
Clause 137 ordered to stand part of the Bill.
