LICENSES AND BOOTHS.
HASTINGS May 11. Mr Dyer, S.M., delivered reserved judgment in the case of the Police v. Solllis, The defendant was charged under section 215 of the Licefei»g*Act that,, being-.a prohibited person, he entered licensed premises, viz., a licensed booth on a racecourse. The defence was that a booth did not come within the meaning of licensed premises under Section 215. The conditional license was issued under Section.B2, and there was no mention of .any particular prefiiiseSj which is the ca.se in'dealing with publicans' licenses. The Magistrate, in his judgment, - held that a place where liquor is sold under a conditional license v ..was only to bo considered licensed premises in so far as offences against public order, illiciii -sales or ■adulteration of liquor were concerned. In respect of prohibition orders and breaches of such orders, he did not think that the plVices to which a conditional License referred could be deemed licensed premises. He thought therefore that the defendant did not enter licensed premises. The information was dismissed. In view of the Magistrate's decision a member of the Hawke's Bay Licensing Committee has filed a notice of motion that the committees refuse any more conditional. licenses ii' the judgment is .upheld.-'
