Street Trading Amendment Bill: Update

In July we reported on a private Members bill to amend schedule 4 of the Local Government (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1982 by proposing to replace “or offering for sale of any article” with “offering or providing for sale of any article or service”.

The bill was due to have its second reading on the 6th of September but was not moved for debate because the session ran out of time.  At this stage there is no indication when the bill will progress further if at all.  Very few private Members bill actually make it on to the statute books and it remains to be seen if this one will.
