Amendment of Excise Regulations 1913.

(Statutory Rules 1913, No. 345, as amended to this date.)

After regulation 181 of the Excise Regulations 1913, the following regulation is inserted:—

Declarations by Agents.

“181a. (1) Forms containing declarations may be signed by a duly authorized agent in cases where the principal is legally incapable of making a declaration.

(2) Any officer may require from any agent the production of his written authority from the principal for whom he claims to act, and in default of the production of such authority may refuse to recognise the agency.

(3) Any declaration made by an agent in pursuance of this regulation shall be held to have been made with the knowledge and consent of the principal, so that in any prosecution in respect of any declaration made by any such agent the principal shall be liable only to the pecuniary punishment provided by the Act or these Regulations as if such declaration had been made by the principal.” (T. & C. 20/A.5388.)
