SHOPS ACT, 1912-1936. The total number of visits made
during the year in respect of the Shops Act was 5,273, and 741
infringements were detected. The majority of these were of a
technical nature, in respect of which 719 verbal cautions were
given regarding the exhibition of forms and the keeping of
required records. In cases of a more persistent nature, 22
written warnings were issued.
Owing to the restrictions on lighting being still in force,
and the small quota of goods on sale in shops, the infringements
of the Shops (Hours of Closing) Act, 1928, were of a minor
character, and it was not found necessary to take legal proceedings
in any case.
SUPPLY OF INSULIN. During the year 9 new applications
were received for the free supply of insulin. In addition,
15 other persons continued to receive assistance in this connection.
