Glasgow Commonwealth Games Act 2008

Street Trading Etc.

Section 7: Existing trading licences

21.This section makes it clear that holding a trading licence granted before or after this section comes into force is not a defence against a trading offence under the Act. A person who holds or is awarded an ordinary street trading licence will, therefore, be required to obtain authorisation from the Organising Committee in order to trade in the vicinity of a Games location at a prohibited time without committing an offence under the Act.
