REDMARLEY. I REMOVING SWINE. — At Upton-on-Severn Petty Sessions yesterday (Thursday), G H Stallard, of Dingwood Park, Ledbury, was charged with causing swine to be removed with- out a licence, and Cyril Galliers, his employee, was summoned for moving the same. Both pleaded guilty. P.C. Wilce stated that he saw the defendant Stallard, and asked him if he had sold nine store pigs to Mr Browning, of Red- marley, and if he had a licence to move them from Herefordshire into this county. Defend- ant replied that he did not think he required licence to remove pigs from one farm to another. Later, witness saw Galliers and asked him if he remembered moving the pigs to Mr Browning's farm. He replied Yes I took them to Red- marley, and Mr Browning unloaded them in Mr Robinson's field." Defendant Stallard told the Bench that he told Galliers to take the pigs to Letter House, Bromsberrow, but he took them along the road till he met Mr Browning's boy, and they unloaded them in the field. He was unaware that he required a licence to move pigs from one farm to another in the same county. He had been on his farm for over 20 years, and seldom bought any pigs. He was fined B7 and costs by the Ledbury Bench for a similar offence in respect of the same pigs on the same occasion. Supt. Sheriff stated that that summons was not taken out for the same offence for which the defendant was fined at Ledbury, which was for moving these same pigs from his premises without a licence. On March 24 the pigs were exposed in Ledbury market for sale, when they were bought by Mr Stallard, and in that market that day there were two outbreaks of swine fever. Whether these pigs came into contact with the infected pigs he could not say, but defendant should have kept them on his farm for 28 days. Had he applied for a licence for their removal to Worcestershire, it would not have been granted. These orders were made by the local authorities at great expense to the ratepayers and people should comply with them. As the fines at Ledbury were so heavy, he would be satisfied if defendant paid the costs. The Chairman enlarged upon the importance of persons who keep pigs making themselves conversant with the various regulations. They would be satisfied if the defendant paid the costs of both cases, which amounted to 15s.— George Bishop, of Redmarley, was charged with failing to give up a license when removing swine. Defendant admitted the offence. He said he had a license, but had left it in his pocket. Defendant was ordered to pay the costs, 7s. 6d. P.O. Wilce proved the case.
