The Fisheries Act 2020 (Scheme for Financial Assistance) (England) Regulations 2021 (No. 908).

Type of law

These Regulations establish a scheme in relation to England for the giving of grants under section 33 of the Fisheries Act 2020 (c. 22) and lay down a procedure for grant application. Part 1 contains general introductory provisions, Part 2 provides for the establishment of the scheme, and Part 3 makes provision for the payment of grants by the Marine Management Organisation.
Payment of a grant is dependent on the Marine Management Organisation being satisfied as to the expenditure and the compliance with certain conditions related to record keeping. The Marine Management Organisation is also provided with the power to vary, suspend and revoke the approval of an application for a grant and may, by notice, require the repayment of a grant if certain conditions are not satisfied.
Furthermore these Regulations place an obligation on the Marine Management Organisation to publish specified information relating to any grants paid out under the scheme.
