Report of the Interim Director of Consumer Protection and Market Operations.
The Committee considered a report of the Interim Director of Consumer Protection & Market Operations on the Street Trading: Repeal of Part III of the City of London (Various Powers) Act 1965.
Members were advised that although it is unlawful to carry out street trading on a City Walkway, powers of enforcement do not extend to confiscating and forfeiture which are available in respect of illegal street trading on a street under City of London (Various Powers) legislation. The proposal would overcome this problem.
RESOLVED – that the Committee:
It is recommended that Monday 22 July 2019 is appointed as the day from which the provisions of Part III of the 1965 Act are repealed and that this date is advertised in the London Gazette and a newspaper circulating in the City.
