Abstract/Citation: Gives effect in part to the Merchant Shipping (Minimum Standards) Convention 1976 (International Labour Organisation Convention No. 147) laid before Parliament on 24 April 1978 and ratified by the United Kingdom and in force internationally, which requires that safety standards regarding hours of work be established.
