Section 150 - Power to require information relating to certain substances and objects

211.Section 150 provides a power to require information relating to certain substances and objects. It enables enforcement officers to require a person to give details of any substance or objects on board their vehicle, vessel, aircraft or marine structure. People on board can also be required to give information about substances or objects lost from their vehicle, vessel, aircraft or marine structure. The section generally re-enacts powers in the Food and Environment Protection Act 1985. Subsections (2) and (3) prevent information obtained under this section from being used as evidence in a criminal prosecution (save for a prosecution for the offence of making a false statement, if the information given is found to be false).
