This Private Bill, which has already had two readings in the House of Lords, seeks to impose a range obligations, including registration, on any dealer in secondhand goods who does business in Kent. The Bill has strong police backing but has been hurried into Parliament without consulting dealers in Kent. It is also intended that the law will apply to auctions and ISVA and RICS who have also arranged discussions with Kent.
