What deductions from a seaman’s wages may be made in connection with his dismissal or indiscipline?

A deduction from wages may be made in three cases. 

(1) Where a seafarer employed under an MCA-approved crew agreement incorporating the MN Code of Conduct is dismissed from the ship for a Paragraph 9 breach, a deduction may be made of the actual cost of his repatriation to the UK or one week’s wages, whichever is least. (2) A deduction of up to £100 may be made for any expense or financial loss suffered by the employer because of a seaman’s absence without leave. (3) A deduction of up to £300 may be made for any expense or financial loss to the employer where the cause was a breach of the Crew Agreement other than absence without leave (e. g. because the seaman damaged ship’s property).

The deduction for expense or loss caused to the employer by absence a seaman’s without leave used to be £300. Why was it reduced to £100?

Can a UK shipmaster impose any fines on crew members?
