Regina v Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, ex parte Bray: QBD 13 Apr 1999

A bylaw, restricting fishing by reference to the size of the ship, was valid. The words must not be construed out of context of the whole Act, and in this case an ‘instrument’ used for fishing did not include the vessel itself.
