Clause 4 of the Bill, titled Provision of services sought to extend the definition of street trading under the Local Government (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1982 to add the supplying of or offering to supply any service in a street to activities which were already covered which were the selling or exposing or offering for sale of any article (including a living thing) in a street. The effect being to extend the range of activities subject to street trading regulations.
