Gangmaster conviction for Dumfries and Galloway man

Gangmaster conviction for Dumfries and Galloway man
 
A Dumfries and Galloway Forestry Contractor was convicted at Dumfries Sheriff Court on Friday 15 October 2010 on a charge of section 12(1) of the Gangmasters (Licensing) Act 2004.
 
Christopher Fairgrieve Murray of Dunscore pled guilty to the charge of operating as a gangmaster without a licence and was fined 2,500.
 
Mr Murray had requested information from the GLA in September 2008 and admitted he was aware of the need for a licence, but he was found supplying two forestry businesses in the Dumfries and Galloway area between 4 December 2007 and 24 June 2009.
 
Paul Whitehouse, Chairman on the GLA said: This man also put the businesses that used them in danger as we could have taken action against them as well, but we accepted that they had been effectively duped by Mr Murray into believing he didnt need a licence.
