India: Parliament Passes Bill To Replace 170-Year-Old Maritime Laws

A legislation which aims to establish a legal framework for consolidation of maritime laws and to confer admiralty jurisdiction on all high courts of the coastal states in the country has been passed by both the houses of Parliament.

The Admiralty (Jurisdiction and Settlement of Maritime Claims) Bill, 2017 seeks to repeal laws such as the Admiralty Court Act, 1861 and the Colonial Courts of Admiralty Act, 1890. The Rajya Sabha, the upper house, passed the Bill on Monday. The Lok Sabha had cleared it in March.

“Earlier, admiralty (shipping)-related disputes were settled under 170-year-old five statutes made under the British era. With the passage of this bill, these five statutes have been repealed,” Mansukh L Mandaviya, minister of state for road transport, highways and shipping, told reporters in New Delhi on Tuesday.

There were no clarifications in the old laws on matters related to collision of ships, wages of workers in maritime industry, salvage, charter ships, etc. This Bill paves the way for these matters.

Did house prices rise or fall in June? It depends who you ask

The decrease was the first monthly decline reported since January 2017 and lowers the annual rate of growth to 2.6%, the lowest rate since May 2013. The average price of a UK home now stands at £218,390, according to the mortgage lender.

Martin Ellis, Halifax housing economist, commented: “Although employment levels continue to rise, household finances face increasing pressure as consumer prices grow faster than wages. This, combined with the new stamp duty on buy to let and second homes in 2016, appears to have weakened housing demand in recent months.”

However, the findings contradict those of competitor Nationwide, who announced a 1.1% increase in house prices in the month of June, placing the average house price at £211,301. Nationwide also revealed a drop in annual price growth in the London area – the second slowest pace of the 13 UK regions, and the weakest pace of growth in the capital since 2012.

Commenting on the figures, Robert Gardner spokesman for Nationwide, said: “There has been a shift in regional house price trends. Price growth in the South of England has moderated, converging with the rates prevailing in the rest of the country. The gap between the strongest performing region (East Anglia, which saw 5% annual growth) and the weakest (the North, with 1% growth) was the smallest on record, based on data going back to 1974. Nevertheless, when viewed in levels, the price gap between regions remains extremely wide.”
