Section 64: Offences
228.This section provides for the same offences as section 74 of the 1992 Act in respect of charitable collections. Subsection (2) of this section is wider than that of the 1992 Act, as it includes the different types of applications and notifications proposed in the Act. The maximum penalty of a level 5 fine (currently £5,000) provided for by subsection (3) of this section is higher than the corresponding maximum penalties in section 74 of the 1992 Act.
