      (3)  

In proceedings before the county court for the recovery of a financial

 

penalty or part of a financial penalty, a certificate which is—

 

(a)    

signed by the chief finance officer of the local weights and

 

measures authority which imposed the penalty, and

 

(b)    

states that the amount due has not been received by a date

 

specified in the certificate,

 

            

is conclusive evidence of that fact.

 

      (4)  

A certificate to that effect and purporting to be so signed is to be treated

 

as being so signed unless the contrary is proved.

 

      (5)  

A local weights and measures authority may use the proceeds of a

 

financial penalty for the purposes of any of its functions (whether or not

 

the function is expressed to be a function of a local weights and measures

 

authority).

 

      (6)  

In this paragraph “chief finance officer” has the same meaning as in

 

section 5 of the Local Government and Housing Act 1989.”

In the Title

Line 4, after “law” insert “and the Competition Appeal Tribunal”
