Vending machine permits shall not be granted in premises where vending opportunities exist for the purpose of avoiding issuance of a vending stand permit.
(c) Existing permits. Where a determination has been made that a permit for the operation of a vending stand or machines by licensed blind persons is to be issued, existing permits which are determined to be in substantial competition with the operation by the blind person shall be terminated as soon as possible under the terms of such permits.
(d) Surveys. Department Agencies shall cooperate with the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare and State licensing agencies in making surveys to determine whether and where vending stands may be properly and profitably operated by blind persons. § 1.93
