452.     Appointment of local authority inspectors.

Every local authority must appoint as many inspectors1 and other officers as it thinks necessary for the execution and enforcement of the Animal Health Act 1981, and must assign to them such duties and may delegate to them such authority and discretion as it thinks fit2. Wherever an inspector is so appointed, or ceases to be an inspector, and whenever there is any change in an inspector's name, address or district, the authority must forthwith report the fact to the appropriate authority3.
