(2) Where a trading kiosk to which this Article applies is present in a road, the owner of that kiosk shall, unless there is in force a licence under this Article authorising its presence in that road, be guilty of an offence and liable on summary conviction to a fine not exceeding level 3 on the standard scale.

(3) Where—

(a)a person is convicted of an offence under paragraph (2); and

(b)he does not, within such period as the court may allow, remove the trading kiosk in question and make good any damage to the road,

then the Department may itself—

(5) The Department may—

(b)issue such a licence to the owner of a trading kiosk and his successors in title, the licence, unless withdrawn or surrendered, to be transferred with the ownership of the trading kiosk;

and references in this Article to the licensee are references to the person who is for the time being entitled to the benefit of a licence under this Article.

(6) A licence under this Article shall be issued subject to such conditions as the Department thinks fit.

(b)requiring the licensee to give the Department not less than 6 weeks notice of his intention to cease using or abandon that trading kiosk.

(8) The Department may by notice served on the licensee withdraw a licence issued under this Article—

(a)on the expiration of such period as may be specified in the notice, being a period of not less than 7 days beginning with the date of service of the notice on the licensee, if—

(ii)make good any damage to the road.

(11) The licensee or (in the case of a licence which has expired or been withdrawn or surrendered) the last licensee shall indemnify the Department against any claim in respect of injury, damage or loss arising out of—

(a)the presence in a road of the trading kiosk to which the licence relates; or

(b)the carrying out by any person of any works required under paragraph (10),

other than a claim in respect of injury, damage or loss which is attributable to the negligence of the Department.

(12) In paragraphs (10) and (11) “the last licensee” means the person who, immediately before the expiration, withdrawal or surrender of the licence, was the licensee or, if that person has died, his personal representative.

(13) Where any trading kiosk is disposed of by sale under paragraph (3)(i) or (10)(b)(i) the expenses of removal and sale and of making good any damage to the road shall be defrayed out of the proceeds thereof and the balance of the proceeds (if any) shall be applied in the same manner as is provided for with respect to fines by section 20 of the Administration of Justice Act (Northern Ireland) 1954F1.

(14) Where the Department disposes of any trading kiosk under paragraph (3)(i) or (10)(b)(i)—

(a)by sale and the proceeds are not sufficient to defray the Department's expenses; or

(b)in some manner other than by sale,
