Two applications for the renewal of licences to keep Pet Shops in
pursuance of Section 1 of the Pet Animals Act, 1951, were approved during
the year.
Regular inspections were carried out by the Public Health Inspectors
to ensure that all animals were being cared for and maintained in accordance
with the conditions specified in the licence,,
RAG FLOCK AND OTHER FILLING MATERIALS ACT. 1951.
Since the above-mentioned Act came into force on the 1st November,
1951, eleven premises used for upholstering and similar processes have been
registered in pursuance of the provisions of Section 2 of the Act.
During the year six premises were using filling materials to which this
Act applies. Thirteen samples of various filling materials were submitted
to the Research Laboratories for analysis and in each case the Analyst issued
a satisfactory certificate.
There are no premises in the Borough where rag flock is manufactured.
PHARMACY AND POISONS ACT. 1933.
The number of listed sellers of Part II Poisons, on the Council's

properly maintained, labelling efficiently performed, storage

nominated on the application forms. In every instance it vas found

with, whilst it was apparent that all concerned were fully aware of their
particular responsibilities.

exterminants, hair dyes, and household ammonia.
