Inspector Called During Absence
At the Queanbeyan Police Court before Mr J. W. Forrest, P.M., Hubert F. Sackett, of Queanbeyan, pleaded guilty to a charge of storing food for sale in an unclean room.
Mr Robert Horne, Health Inspector of Sydney, said that there were 15 bags of flour stored in what had been a motor garage. Evidence of rat infestation was present and the place was unfit for the storage of food.
Defendant said that he was absent at the time when the inspection was made. The flour was the last of a consignment, and he intended cleaning up in preparation for a new one which was invoiced. All flour which showed any sign of rat or mice infection was thrown away and the rest of the flour carefully sieved.
"I invite the public or anyone at any time to inspect my premises," he said.
Sackett was fined £2 with 8/- costs and £2 expenses of witnesses in default 9 days' hard labour."
