conditions applied and make certain that all live poultry remaining in their shops or
stalls are slaughtered before October 25.

unsold live poultry by removing them from the property before this rest day.

poultry outlets on October 25. If stalls or shops fail to meet the terms of rest
day conditions, there will be an immediate termination of market stalls or
cancellation of fresh provision shop licences.
