[F1289E Penalties for first and subsequent convictions of summary offences to be the same. S

(1)Subject to subsections (2) to (4) and (6) below, this section applies where any Act—

(b)otherwise fulfils the conditions of subsection (1) above;

(a)a fine not exceeding the greatest amount;

(b)imprisonment for a term not exceeding the longest term (if any)

to which an offender would have been liable or could have been made liable on any conviction (whether the first or a second or subsequent conviction) by or under the Act immediately before the commencement of this section.
