Glasgow Commonwealth Games Act 2008

Street Trading Etc.

Section 6: Trading permitted without authorisation

20.This section allows the trading regulations to determine circumstances in which trading which would otherwise constitute a trading offence would be permitted without the need for authorisation from the Organising Committee. This could be by reference to the person who is trading, the nature or purpose of the trading or the application of any profits. For example, the regulations could exempt certain news vendors, milk deliveries or charitable sales from being required to seek authorisation reflecting the fact that certain trading activities do not require a street trading licence under other enactments.
