PSPO's have no authority over pedlary

never pay PSPO FPN's - search PSPO


Many fellow pedlars have written to thank us and some have asked how they can contribute to support our voluntary efforts. While our intent is to make information freely available, we do have expenses and welcome any support. Thanks!

Repeal of the Pedlars Acts:
Question 1: Do you agree with the proposed repeal of the
Pedlars Acts 1871 and 1881 UK-wide?

tick No

HMG admits that it does not have a clear understanding of the national picture and by such admissions rules itself incompetent to draft national legislation. Any claim that the consultation proposes “national” resolution is considered by stakeholders to be fallacious. The Pedlars Act is the only “national” legislation that lends itself to resolving perceived problems.

Parliament directed government to desist from introducing piecemeal legislation and consequential parliamentary time to resolve perceived national problems but the draft proposed legislation from BIS exacerbates the potential for piecemeal legislation at an adoptive local level and fails to resolve private local Acts and is inapplicable in jurisdictions that have no legislation.

The remaining consultation questions beyond Q1 are considered unreasonably biased and irrelevant to stakeholder pedlars.

The impact assessment URN12/606 is considered pathologically delusional.

We urge the Secretary of State to call-in URN12/605 and URN12/606 and engage in stakeholders Third Option Policy with its national legislative amendments at point 6 below as a continuation of government policy during 2008, 2009, 2010, & 2011.

In the absence of any substantive response from BIS to points and questions raised by pedlars willing to enter into this consultation there follows a list of those points and questions that herewith form a partial reply to this consultation.

It is noted that BIS has consistently refused to extend the consultation deadline to enable proper response from pedlar stakeholders and as a result this response is submitted under duress as BIS has failed to clarify or respond to stakeholder’s concerns:
