The keeping and use of petroleum or of any other inflammable liquid or fuel for the purpose of light locomotives shall be subject to regulations made by a Secretary of State, and regulations so made shall have effect nothwithstanding anything in the Petroleum Acts, 1871 to 1881, and breach of any such regulation may, on summary conviction, be punished by a fine not exceeding two pounds.
