Fish is not Meat— Lord Goddard

THE question whether fish is meat was finally settled in the Queen's Bench Divisional Court last week. The Lord Chief Justice Lord Goddard held that fish was not meat and Mr. Justice Jones and Mr. Justice Parker agreed.

A F. Wardaugh, Ltd., Newcastle upon Tyne, appealed against two convictions by the Liverpool stipendiary for carrying goods beyond the 25-mile limit without a permit. R.A.H. Transporters, Ltd., convicted of aiding and abetting, also appealed. The case arose from the carriage in February, 1951, of 6i tons of fish in a vehicle belonging to A. F. Wardaugh, Ltd., from Newcastle to Fleetwood, Lancs.

For the appellants, Mr. F. A. Stockdale contended that the 25-mile limit did not apply because fish was "meat," as defined in the Transport Act. Lord Goddard, giving judgment, said: "1 do not think that anyone would deny that when people now refer to' meat, they mean butcher's meat. . Meat under this statute does not include fish." The appeals were dismissed with costs.
