Street Trading Etc.
Section 4: Authorised trading
17.This section allows the trading regulations to determine circumstances in which the Organising Committee may authorise persons to trade in a way which would otherwise constitute a trading offence. Such authorisation will be subject to any conditions imposed by the trading regulations and by the Organising Committee under section 5.
18.Subsection (2) provides that the regulations may require the authorisation to be granted only if a trading licence already exists for a particular place, or if the person applying for authorisation already holds a trading licence. Regulations may also provide for the authorisation to be treated as if it were a trading licence which would eliminate the need for the authorised trader, for example, to obtain a street trading licence under another enactment once authorised under the Act. Regulations may also set out the procedure for application for authorisation, set a limit on the level of fees that may be charged and provide for a right of appeal against a refusal by the Organising Committee to grant authorisation.
