Arthur Warner (Leicester) Limited were convicted on 41 summonses for breach of the Poultry (Maximum Prices) Order and the Fish (Maximum Prices) Order, and Arthur Warner was convicted on 41 summonses for aiding and abetting the company. The summonses related to offences of buying above the maximum price and entering into artificial transactions. The company on each of the 41 summonses was fined £75 and ordered to pay 100 guineas in respect of the costs and the same penalty was inflicted on Warner. I have read the statement made by the presiding magistrate.
