Office Premises Act, 1958

Power of court to order cause of contravention to be remedied.

33.—Where the occupier or owner of an office is convicted of an offence under this Act, the court may, in addition to or instead of inflicting a fine, order him, within the time specified in the order, to take such steps as may be so specified for remedying the matters in respect of which the contravention occurred, and may, on application, enlarge the time so specified, and where such an order is made, the occupier or owner shall not be liable under this Act in respect of the continuation of the contravention during the time allowed by the court, but if, after the expiration of that time as originally specified or enlarged by subsequent order, the order is not complied with, the occupier or owner, as the case may be, shall be guilty of an offence and shall be liable on summary conviction thereof to a fine not exceeding five pounds for each day on which the non-compliance continues.
