“statutory statement” has the meaning assigned by Article 2(1).[3]

(2)    Where for the purposes of this Law the expressions “percentage of soluble phosphates” and “percentage of insoluble phosphates” are used in statements of equivalents, they shall be taken to mean respectively the percentage of tribasic phosphate of lime which has been and that which has not been rendered soluble in water.

(3)    An article consigned to a purchaser shall not for the purposes of this Law be deemed to be delivered to the purchaser until it arrives at the place to which it is consigned whether the consignment is by direction of the seller or the purchaser.

(4)    Where an article is delivered to a purchaser in 2 or more consignments, this Law shall apply to each consignment as though it were a separate article.

(5)    Where the method of analysis for determining the amount of any substance contained in an article is prescribed under this Law, any statement in any statutory statement or document which by virtue of this Law takes effect as a warranty and any mark on an article or entry in a register under this Law stating or indicating the amount of such substance shall be taken to be a statement of the amount of the substance as determined by analysis in accordance with the method so prescribed.

(6)    Particulars as to the nature, substance, or quality of an article marked or indicated by a mark or entered in a register shall not for the purposes of this Law be deemed to be false to the prejudice of the purchaser if the mis-statement as respects any ingredient does not exceed the limits of variation (if any) prescribed under this Law in relation thereto.

2      Obligation to furnish statutory statements

(1)    It shall be the duty of every person who sells for use as a fertiliser of the soil or as food for cattle or poultry any article included in the first column of Schedule 1 or 2, whatever may be the name under which the article is sold, to give the purchaser on or before delivery, or as soon as reasonably practicable thereafter, a statement in writing (in this Law referred to as a “statutory statement”) in such form (if any) as may be prescribed, containing the following particulars –

(c)     where the article, if a feeding stuff, contains any ingredient included in Schedule 3, the name of such ingredient:

Provided that the obligation so imposed shall not apply –

(i)     to sales of 2 or more articles which are mixed at the request of the purchaser before delivery to the purchaser;

(ii)    to sales of quantities of £56 or less if the article sold is taken in the presence of the purchaser from a parcel bearing a conspicuous label on which are marked in the prescribed manner the particulars required by this paragraph to be contained in the statutory statement or is packed in a closed parcel or parcels each bearing a conspicuous label on which are marked in the prescribed manner such particulars as aforesaid.

(2)    Failure to give a statutory statement in accordance with the provisions of this Article shall not invalidate an agreement for sale.

3      Warranties

(1)    A statutory statement given by the seller of any such article as is mentioned in Article 2, shall, notwithstanding any agreement or notice to the contrary, have effect as a written warranty by the seller that the particulars contained in the statutory statement are correct.

(2)    On the sale for use as food for cattle or poultry of an article included in the first column of Schedule 1 or 2 there shall be implied, notwithstanding any agreement or notice to the contrary, a warranty by the seller that the article is suitable to be used as such, and does not, except as otherwise expressly stated in the statutory statement, contain any ingredient included in Schedule 3.

(3)    Where an article sold for use as a fertiliser of the soil or as food for cattle or poultry is in a statutory statement or other document described by a name specified in the first column of Schedule 4, the sale of the article under that name shall have effect as a written warranty that the article accords with the definition thereof contained in the second column of that Schedule.

(4)    Any statement as to the amount of chemical or other ingredients or as to the fineness of grinding of an article sold for use as a fertiliser of the soil, or as to the amount of the nutritive or other ingredients of an article sold for use as food for cattle or poultry, which is made after the commencement of this Law in any written document (other than a statutory statement) descriptive of the article shall have effect as a warranty by the seller that the facts stated are correct.

(5)    No action on any such warranty as is mentioned in this Article shall lie for any mis-statement therein as to the particulars of the nature, substance or quality of the article or as to the amount of any ingredient where the mis-statement does not exceed the limits of variation (if any) prescribed under this Law in relation to such particulars or amounts, but where the mis-statement exceeds such limits the rights of the purchaser under the warranty shall not be affected by such limits.

4      Right of purchaser to have article sampled and analysed

(1)    The purchaser of any article included in the first column of Schedule 1 or 2, or of any fertiliser or feeding stuff not included therein in respect of which a warranty, express or implied, has been given by the seller, shall, on payment of such fee (if any) as may be prescribed by Order of the Minister for Treasury and Resources under this Law, be entitled to have a sample of the article taken by an inspector in the prescribed manner and analysed by the Official Analyst, and to receive from the Analyst a certificate of the result of the Analyst’s analysis:

Provided that a purchaser of an article who requires a sample to be taken under this Article shall furnish to the inspector who takes the sample the statutory statement or warranty relating to the article, or permit the inspector to take a copy thereof.

(2)    A sample taken under this Law by an inspector at the request of a purchaser shall be taken in the prescribed manner, and shall not be taken after the expiration of 14 days from the delivery to the purchaser of the article sampled or the receipt by the purchaser of the statutory statement or warranty, whichever date may be the later.

5      Marking of articles prepared for consignment

(1)    Every parcel of an article included in the first column of Schedule 1, when prepared for sale or consignment for use as a fertiliser of the soil or as food for cattle or poultry, shall, if exposed for sale, or, if not exposed for sale, before being removed from the premises where it is so prepared, be marked in the prescribed manner with a mark or marks stating or indicating the particulars required by this Law to be contained in the statutory statement.

(2)    Any person dealing in any such parcels may for the purposes of this Article keep in such form (if any) as may be prescribed a register of marks specifying the particulars for the indication of which the several marks entered in the register are used, and the marking of any parcel with any mark entered in the register shall, for the purposes of this Article, be treated as indicating that the particulars of the article are those entered in the register in relation to the mark:

Provided that –

(a)     on the sale of any parcel so marked the mark shall be added to the statutory statement; and

(b)     where the statutory statement received by the seller on the sale to him or her of the parcel contains any such mark, and the parcel has not been on his or her premises, that mark shall be added by him or her to the statutory statement required to be given by him or her to a purchaser.

(3)    If any parcel required under this Article to be marked is not so marked, or if from the analysis of a sample of the parcel taken by an inspector in the prescribed manner on the premises on which the parcel is exposed for sale or on any premises on which the parcel after having been so marked may happen to be before being delivered to a purchaser or carrying agent, it appears that the particulars marked or indicated by a mark are false to the prejudice of the purchaser, or do not include any particulars which are required by this Law to be contained in the statutory statement, the person selling or having in the person’s possession or disposition for the purpose of sale or consigning the parcel or exposing it for sale shall be guilty of an offence against this Law.

6      Consignments ex ship or quay

(1)    In the case of an article delivered or consigned direct from a ship or quay to a purchaser, the provisions of this Article shall apply in lieu of the provisions of Article 5.

(b)     any shipping or other mark on the article;

(c)     the particulars which by this Law are required to be contained in the statutory statement.

(3)    The seller of any such article shall be guilty of an offence against this Law –

(a)     if the seller fails to enter in the seller’s register any particular required by this Article to be entered therein, other than a particular required to be contained in the statutory statement;

(b)     if any particular entered therein, other than a particular required to be contained in the statutory statement, is false in any material particular; or

(c)     if, from the analysis of a sample of the article taken by an inspector in the prescribed manner on the quay or at the time of its delivery to the purchaser or during its transit to him or her, it appears that any particular entered in the register, being a particular required to be contained in the statutory statement, is false to the prejudice of the purchaser, or that any particular required to be contained in the statutory statement is not entered in the register.

7      Sales in small quantities

Where an article is sold for use as a fertiliser of the soil or as food for cattle or poultry in quantities of £56 or less from a parcel which purports to be labelled in manner hereinbefore provided, and from an analysis of a sample thereof taken by an inspector in the prescribed manner on the premises on which the parcel is kept, it appears that the particulars stated on the label are false to the prejudice of the purchaser, or do not include any particulars which are required by this Law to be contained in a statutory statement, the owner or seller shall be guilty of an offence against this Law.

8      Deleterious ingredients in feeding stuffs

(1)    Any person who sells or offers or exposes for sale for use as food for cattle or poultry any article which contains any ingredient deleterious to cattle or poultry, or has in the person’s possession, packed and prepared, for sale for such use any such article, shall be guilty of an offence against this Law unless the person proves –

(a)     that he or she did not know and could not with reasonable care have known that the article contained a deleterious ingredient; and

(b)     where he or she obtained the article from some other person, that on demand by or on behalf of the prosecutor he or she gave all the information in his or her power with respect to the person from whom he or she obtained it, and as to the statutory statement given to him or her, and as to any mark applied to the article when he or she obtained it:

Provided that proceedings for an offence under this Article shall not be instituted unless the article has been sampled by an inspector in the prescribed manner on the premises on which it was sold or exposed or offered for sale or on which it was when prepared for sale or consignment, and the sample has been analysed in accordance with the provisions of this Law.

(2)    Any substance mentioned in Schedule 5 shall, if present in a feeding stuff or, where a maximum quantity with regard to the substance is indicated in Schedule 5, if present in excess of that quantity, as the case may be, be deemed to be a deleterious ingredient unless the contrary is proved.

9      Penalties for failure to give, and mis-statements in, statutory statements

(1)    If a person fails to give a statutory statement in such form (if any) as may be prescribed in any case where the person is required by this Law to do so, he or she shall be liable in the case of a first offence, to a fine not exceeding £5 and, in the case of a second or subsequent offence, to a fine not exceeding £10.

(2)    If, on the sale of an article included in the first column of Schedule 1, a person gives a statutory statement in which the particulars stated therein differ –

(a)     from the particulars marked or indicated by a mark placed on a parcel of the article in accordance with this Law;

(b)     in the case of an article delivered or consigned direct from a ship or quay to a purchaser, from the particulars entered in accordance with this Law in the seller’s register; or

(c)     in the case of an article which has not been on the premises of the seller, from the particulars stated in the statutory statement given to the seller in respect of the article,

the person shall be guilty of an offence against this Law unless he or she proves that he or she took all reasonable steps to avoid committing the offence and that he or she acted without intent to defraud.

(3)    If a person fails to add to a statutory statement any mark which by virtue of this Law is required to be added thereto, he or she shall be liable, in the case of a first offence, to a fine not exceeding £5 and, in the case of a second or subsequent offence, to a fine not exceeding £10.

9A      Composition and content of fertilisers and feeding stuffs

13    Tampering with samples

If any person fraudulently –

14    Obstruction of inspectors

If the owner or person entrusted for the time being with the charge and custody of any article refuses to allow an inspector to take a sample of the article on any premises on which the inspector is authorized under this Law to take a sample, or if any person otherwise wilfully delays or obstructs any inspector in the execution of the inspector’s duties under this Law, he or she shall be liable to a fine not exceeding £20:

Provided that an inspector seeking to exercise the inspector’s powers under this Law shall, if so required, produce evidence of his or her appointment or authority.

17    Restrictions on taking proceedings

(1)    Where proceedings under this Law are taken against a person in respect of causing or permitting any name, mark or particulars to be false, or for making a false entry in his or her register or for failure to state the presence in a feeding stuff of an ingredient included in Schedule 3, the person shall not be liable to conviction if he or she proves –

(a)     that having taken all reasonable precautions against committing an offence against this Law he or she had not at the time of committing the alleged offence reason to suspect the correctness of the mark or entry, or the presence of such ingredient as aforesaid, as the case may be; and

(2)    A prosecution in respect of causing or permitting any name, mark or particulars to be false or in respect of the presence of any ingredient included in Schedule 3 or of any deleterious ingredient shall not be instituted under this Law after the expiration of 3 months from the date on which a sample of the article was taken in the prescribed manner.

(3)    In any such prosecution as aforesaid the person charged with the alleged offence shall not be presented before the court less than 14 days after the day on which the person is warned so to appear and when the person is so warned there shall be delivered to the person a copy of any certificate of the Official Analyst obtained on behalf of the prosecutor.

18    General provisions as to legal proceedings

(1)    Proceedings for an offence against this Law shall be instituted on the requirement of the Minister, or, except in the case of offences to which Article 16 applies, on the requirement of the person aggrieved.

(2)    In any proceedings for an offence under this Law it shall be no defence to allege that, a sample having been taken for analysis only, there was no prejudice to the purchaser.

(3)    If, in any legal proceedings, the person by or on whose behalf the sample of an article is taken and analysed, or the owner or seller of the article, objects to the certificate of the Official Analyst, the court shall, on the application of the person objecting thereto, order that the part of the sample retained by the Official Analyst be submitted to the Government Chemist in order that it may be analysed by the Government Chemist or by some other person acting under the Government Chemist’s direction and a certificate of the result of the analysis submitted to the court. Any statutory statement or warranty relating to the article sampled or a copy thereof, or a copy of the particulars marked on or indicated by a mark applied to the article shall be sent to the Government Chemist with the part of the sample. The costs of and incidental to such analysis shall be borne by the person on whose application such order was made:

Provided that the provisions of this paragraph shall not apply in any case where the part of the sample retained by the Official Analyst has been submitted to the Government Chemist by the Minister under the provisions of Article 12(7).

19    Evidence of certificate of analysis

(1)    Where a sample, which has been taken in the prescribed manner by an inspector and has been divided into parts and marked, sealed and fastened up as hereinbefore mentioned, has been analysed, the certificate of the Official Analyst shall at the hearing of any civil or criminal proceedings with respect to the article sampled be sufficient evidence of the facts therein stated, unless the defendant or person charged requires that the person who made the analysis be called as a witness or that the court, in pursuance of Article 18(3), order that the sample be further analysed by the Government Chemist.

(2)    In any legal proceedings the production of a certificate of the Government Chemist shall be sufficient evidence of the facts stated therein.

20    Power to make Orders

The Minister may make Orders for prescribing anything which under this Law is required or authorized to be prescribed, and generally for carrying this Law into operation, and in particular any such Order may provide –

(a)     for varying any of the Schedules to this Law;

(b)     for prescribing the manner in which articles required to be marked under this Law are to be marked and the nature of such marks;

(f)     as to the form of certificates of analysis to be given by the Official Analyst,

and where any Schedule is varied by an Order so made, this Law shall have effect as if the Schedule as so varied were substituted for the Schedule contained in this Law.

21    Financial provisions

(1)    The Minister for Treasury and Resources may, by Order, prescribe the fees to be payable in respect of the making of any analysis by the Official Analyst and the taking of samples at the request of purchasers, and that Minister may thereby prescribe different fees for different articles and for different quantities of the same article or for different analyses of the same article.
