POLICE NOT TOLD

SOURCE OF OIL FUEL

TAXI-DRIVER FINED £3

O.C. PALMERSTON N., this day

In a reserved judgment Mr. H. P. Lawry, S.M., held Edward F. Mcintosh, taxi-driver, guilty of failing to give Constable Sleeth information relating to the source of oil fuel, which defendant had admitted obtaining irregularly. The prosecution was the outcome of the stopping of defendant's car by the constable recently. When defendant pleaded guilty to purchasing 35 gallons.of petrol other than authorised by the Oil Fuel Controller, his counsel, Mr. A. M. Ongley, contested a second charge of failing to furnish the police with information about where he got it. Counsel submitted the regulations pi'ovided that only the Oil Fuel Controller could demand the information. . . • The magistrate overruled this contention and imposed a fine of £3 in view of the fact that defendant had been fined £20 on the other charge.
