80 .         Cargo assigned from ship’s slings in railway wagons

        (1)         Every consignee requiring cargo consigned to him to be loaded direct from a ship’s slings into railway wagons shall give notice to the Wharf Manager of that requirement, before 8 a.m. of the same day upon which the cargo is to be discharged and, at the same time, satisfy the Wharf Manager that he has completed arrangements with the master of the ship to have the cargo so discharged; and every consignee shall indemnify the Port Authority against loss or damage to cargo so handled before the work is undertaken.

        (2)         In the event of cargo, required to be discharged as in subregulation (1), being discharged, before the railway wagons have been run alongside the ship for the purpose of direct loading, or in absence of any indemnity against loss or damage to that cargo, the cargo will be run into and stacked in the Port Authority’s sheds, or otherwise dealt with at the option of the Port Authority, and, if the cargo is afterwards required to be loaded into railway wagons, an extra labour charge shall be paid by the consignee for conveying the cargo to the side of the railway wagons.

        (3)         Where the consignee requires loading in railway wagons to be done during hours outside the working hours of the Port Authority, the consignee shall pay the additional cost of labour employed, due to the work being performed at overtime rates.

        (4)         The Port Authority may, notwithstanding the giving of the indemnity in subregulation (2) mentioned, refuse to handle cargo direct from ship’s slings into railway wagons, where, owing to the character of the ship’s gear, or any other reason, that work is, in the opinion of the Wharf Manager, dangerous.

        (5)         Where cargo to which this regulation refers is, for any reason, handled into sheds, or on to any wharf in the Port, the wharfage dues properly applying to that method shall be borne and be payable by the consignee of the cargo.
