April 7, 1900. At Leyland, on Monday, Daish, Salter, & Co, grocers, were summoned for selling bread otherwise than by weight. Inspector Finlay said he found defendants' van delivering bread on March 16. The man in charge answered they did not sell the loaves by weight, and did not know what weight they usually were. The loaf purchased cost 2d, and it weighted 1lb 83/4oz. To all appearance it looked like a 2lb loaf. The Inspector, speaking with regard to plain bread, said it should not be sold in 1lb or 2lb loaves, but it should be sold by weight. The Bench inflicted a fine of 40s and costs. {{COUNTERPOINT }}
