(I) Pharmacy and Poisons Act, 1933.—The number of persons in
the Council's list entitled to sell poisons included in Part II
of the Poisons List was 180. (142 renewals and 38 new
applications.) In the enforcement of this Act, 446 inspections
were made.
(m) Explosives Act, 1875.—170 visits were made in connection
with the storage of mixed explosives (fireworks). There
were 74 applications for the renewal of registration and
29 new applications.
(n) Fertilisers and Feeding Stuffs.—7 samples of fertiliser and
3 of feeding stuffs were taken during the year. Only one
sample of fertiliser was reported by the Council's Agricultural

bone fertiliser which was 1.15 per cent, below the statutory
statement of 13.5 per cent. This sample was sold as a prepacked
article and the manufacturers were cautioned with
regard to the deficiency.
