When must abandon ship and fire drills be held in UK ships?

Within 24 hours of leaving port if more than 25% of the crew have not participated in drills on that ship in the previous month. In Class I, II, II(A) and III ships, abandon ship and fire drills must be held weekly. (In ships of other classes there is no such requirement. )
