SUNDAY PAPER TRADE AT SWANSEA. POLICE AND DELIVERY: TEST CASE PROBABLE. The probability of a test case to decide whether boys delivering newspapers on Sun- day—as distinct from selling them-was fore- shadowed by Mr. Henry Thompson at Swan- sea Juvenile Court on Tuesday. A case had arisen -In which a boy named Richard Thomas was charged by P.C. (107) Francus -who has charge of the juvenile department of the activities of the Swansea force-with street trading at 10.40 a.m., under the ags of 16, on a recent Sunday. Mr. Thompson was instructed by the Shop Keepers' and Small Traders' Association,, and said he had hoped to make that a test case; it appeared, however, from the officer's evidence, that the boy (who wa8 ultimately fined 2s. 6d.) was not delivenng papers but offering them for sale. Mr. Thompson said the position of the Associa- tion, and a Home Office expression of opin- ion, wa. tliat,t-he delivery of papers did not come within the scope of the Act or bye- law. The Swansea newsagents, he eaid, were going to do away with the hawking of papers in the streets on Sunday. B it they were going to instruct the boys TO DELIVER PAPERS AT THE HOUSES I of their regular customers on bunaay. tn the case in question he argued that there was no case to answer as the bye-lav., i!' which the prosecution had been taken lia4 not been proved.-The Bench, however, 86' stated, fined defendant half-a-crown.
