The Milk and Dairies Regulations require every Local Authority to keep a register
of all persons carrying on the trade of distributor in their district and of all premises which
are used as dairies. "Dairy" does not include a shop from which milk is supplied only
in the properly closed and unopened vessels in which it is delivered to the shop, or other
place in which milk is sold for consumption on the premises only. "Distributor"
includes a purveyor of milk whether by wholesale or retail. Most distributors now sell
milk in the bottles and cartons in which they receive it from the wholesaler, and consequently
their premises are not required to be registered as dairies.
