Clause 2 — Gating Orders — Clause 99 — Abandoned shopping and luggage trolleys — 21 Feb 2005 at 19:45

The no voters rejected the following amendment to the clause making business owners responsible for abandoned shopping trolleys. The clause would have prevented business owners from being guilty if they had taken all resonable steps to avoid abandonment of the trolleys.

'(6) In proceedings against a person under sub-paragraph (4) for enforcement of a charge, it is a defence for the person to prove that he took all reasonable steps to prevent abandonment of his trolleys.'.
