(By Telecraph.—Press Association.) PORK BUTCHERS FINED. WELLINGTON, Monday. At the Magistrate's Court to-day, before Mr. W. G. Riddell, S.M., the Health Department proceeded against John, Kuch and John Frederick Kucb, pork ■butchers, on a charge of having sold pressed pork which was unfit for human consumption. Dr. Frengley, district health officer, stated that when he examined the meat it was totally unfit for human consumption. The defence was that the meat was not bad at the time of the sale.
His Worship stated that he was not prepared to say that the defendants had wilfully sold bad meat. On the evidence, however, a conviction must be entered, but the case was not one for a heavy penalty, as there was evidence of some care being exercised. Accordingly both defendants were convicted, and John Frederick Kuch was fined' £2, with costs £4 14/-. i NATIONAL DAIRY SHOW. PALMERSTON N., this day.
