        (1)         Notwithstanding anything contained in this Division the Wharf Manager may, where — 

            (a)         handling services upon the wharves would be advantaged generally by the non-removal of any particular goods within the prescribed period;

            (b)         the non-removal of goods would be conducive to the free flow of other goods;

            (c)         excessive overtime is being worked on vessels, including that worked on Sundays and public holidays, to the detriment of the ordinary delivery of cargo,

                grant such extension of the period prescribed for the removal of goods, either generally or in particular as, in his opinion, is justified by and is reasonable in the circumstances.

        (2)         Where any place is set apart for the placing of goods awaiting shipment, the Wharf Manager may grant such extensions of the period prescribed for the removal of goods as he is empowered to grant under the provision of subregulation (1).

        (3)         Without limiting the provision of subregulation (1) or (2), the Wharf Manager, may at his discretion, in lieu of extending the prescribed period, determine that some lesser rate or rates of storage charges than those prescribed by these regulations, shall be payable in respect of goods, whether awaiting shipment or delivery, that have not been removed in the prescribed period.
