That is in the detail of the legislation and the regulations. I would be interested in seeing the suggestions the committee will make in its report on how to deal with this issue. I personally think that requiring a brick wall and a separate till is too onerous, particularly for very small shops, but one does not want to make rubbish of the new provisions. The current retail code is rubbish, as it qualifies the provision by stating "as far as is practicable," and that is not enough.
