The Sale of Bread Mr Richard Jones, Chief n list able, has issued a bill c I ling the attention of all bl ead sellers to the :t aet that all bread must be weighed in the presence of the pur- chaser. The notice reads that bread must be sold by weight only whether delivered in a shop or at the premises of the purchaser. Any person who sells bread otherwise than by weight is liable to a penalty of two pounds. There is no staudand weight of a loaf. By cus torn a quartern loaf is understood to weigh 4 lbs. and a half quartern loaf 2 lbs. and purchasers who lequire a 4 lb. or 2 lb. loaf should ask for a 4 lb. or 2 lb. loa f as the case may be, and then re- quest that the bread shall be weighed in their presence. Do not ask merely for a loaf," but a 4 lb. or 2 lb. loaf." Correct weighing appliances must be provided in shops where bread is sold, and upon vehicles in which bread is con- veyed for delivery. Any seller of bread who refuses to weigh bread when re- quested by a purchaser is liable to a penalty of five pounds. The only ex. ception from the requirement to sell bread by weight is in the case of 'fancy' bread. Complaints as to infringements of the Bread Act should be addressed to Richard Jones, Chief Constable, Dol- gelley.
