§ (1) Where proceedings are instituted under this Act against a licensed driver or conductor, or against the driver of any cart, carriage, waggon, van, or other vehicle, it shall be lawful for the court to issue a summons directed to the employer of the driver or conductor, as the case may be, requiring him, if it is in his power so to do, to produce the driver or conductor at the hearing of the case.
§ (2) Where proceedings are instituted under this Act, it shall be lawful for the court to issue a summons directed to the owner of the animal requiring him to produce either at, or at any time before, the hearing of the case, as may be stated in the summons, the animal for the inspection of the court, if such production is possible without cruelty.
§ (3) Where a summons is issued under either of the foregoing Sub-sections of this Section, and the owner or employer, as the case may be, fails to comply therewith without satisfactory excuse, he shall be liable upon summary conviction to a fine not exceeding five pounds for the first occasion, and not exceeding ten pounds for the second or any subsequent occasion, on which he so fails, and may be required to pay the costs of any adjournment rendered necessary by his failure.
§ Mr. G. GREENWOOD
I beg to move in Sub-section (1) to leave out the words "a licensed" ["against a licensed driver or conductor"] and to insert instead thereof the word "the." The words "where proceedings are instituted against the licensed driver or conductor of any vehicle" came from the old Act; but there is no licence for a driver or conductor under this Bill, and therefore the words proposed to be left out are not required.
§ Amendment agreed to.
§ Further Amendments made: Leave out the words "or against the driver" ["or against the driver of any cart, carriage, etc."]. Leave out the words "cart, carriage, waggon, van, or other" ["carriage, waggon, van, or other vehicle, it shall be lawful."]—[Mr. G. Greenwood.]
