NOTICE
PROTECTION OF WITNESSES IN
PRICE CON rROL CASES
THE attention of the Administration has
been directed to the reluctance shown by
persons who have been the victims of
overcharging and other offences against
Price Control Regulations to report such
cases to the Police or the Supply Office.
Apparently such persons are afraid of
retaliatory action against them by the
offenders if they should appear in court
as witnesses for the prosecution.
The following section of the Price Con-
trol Order 1947, which is intended
to protect witnesses in Price Control Cases
is brought to the notice of the public.
"27. INTIMIDATION. No vendor
shall in any manner intimidate or victi-
mize or attempt to intimidate or victi-
mize any person who has given or is
about to give evidence against such
vendor in proceedings under this Order,
or who has been, or is being in any way
concerned in the prosecution or intend-
ed prosecution of any vendor under
this Order."
The suppression of profiteering is an
important factor in keeping down the
cost of living. Price Control legislation
can be effective only to the extent that
Government receives the support and
cooperation of all sections of the commu-
nity.
E. O. D. CHARLES
Acting Controller of Supplies.
February 26th, 1953.

POLICE DEPARTMENT
REWARD

A REWARD of $50.00 will be awarded to

with wiltshire horns, stolen from the

February, 1953, or to the detection of the
