San Pedro Establishments Ticketed for Price Regulation Violations

San Pedro Establishments Ticketed for Price Regulation Violations

A total of 35 establishments from San Pedro were issued tickets for violations of the new Supplies Control Price Regulation. The Supplies Control Unit (SCU) under the Ministry of Agriculture, Food Security and Enterprise focuses on administering the provisions of laws and regulations for price control matters and import and exporting licensing regime. Since the New regulations under the SCU were carried out in February, the unit has made three rounds of inspections. Interestingly, their last round of inspections was carried out only at San Pedro. Controller of Supplies, Lennox Nicholson explains why.

Lennox Nicholson, Controller of Supplies: “What we’re trying to do because of the degree of the problem out there in that we have been finding lots of violations on the island and the extent to which they’re out of whack so to speak. So the level of the prices, the degree to which they’re outside of the regulated markups is such that it requires that we pay some special attention to that particular municipality. So we have been doing additional work out there where we’re engaging with local government authorities, going forward we’re going to seek police assistance to increase our presence out there with a view to bringing things under control. So that is what we were doing and that is why we put out the most recent release with the results of that exercise that were specific to that island.”
