The Licensing Question. SWANSEA CONGESTED AREAS. Several Houses Closed. 4-t the last Swansea Licensing Sessions, it will remembered, a number of licences were Wttsed either because the bouses were not re- tired or were nnsuited to the requirements, or tbey were on the black list. In most of the cases appeals to Quarter Sessions were lodged, •rid in those in which the decision went against licence holders notice of appeal to the High COurt was given. with the object of taking ad- vantage of the Farnham decision in the event of "j16 House of Lords reversing the decision of the V°W of Appeal. As recently stated in these 'Wamns, the licensing interest has decided to ab&ndon its intention to take the Farnham case &0 the Lords, and so the decision of the Court of APpeal stands. enabling magistrates to direct 'h&t notices be served on licence-holders by the Police, and then hear the objections. The Swansea appeals, however, in addition to the point involved in the Farnham case, raised the •Qrther point that justices are not entitled to tOnsider cases collectively, but that each case ^Ost be taken separately and decided on its Merits. Hence the appellants were advised not *°. abandon their appeals, notwithstanding the Withdrawal of the Farnham case, but to get an ^Othoritative ruling on the other point, the teat 5^86 being the Volunteers, belonging to Messrs "a,ncock and Co. The houses in regard to which JJDpeals were entered have, pending the decision, een kept open on Excise permits. On Saturday, however, tnnch surprise was Occasioned by the receipt of intimations that of the appeals are to be withdrawn. What led to tbis sudden change is not yet f^nratelv known, except that the course has ^»en taken by direction of the companies with *boin the various licences were insured. A belief ?*GVails in well-informed circles that the reason the withdrawal is an assurance from the Government that a Compensation Bill will be .-■jlshed through Parliament next Session, and "i&t it will be made retrospective. As things at resent stand, however, the effect is that the de- cisions ot Quarter Sessions confirming the "censing justices in the procedure they adopted -'■•tends, and this is a point of some importance, i0Hsidenng that the justices have decided to "<1opt exactly the same course with regard to pother congested area at the euauing Brewster Sessions. The bouses which, pending the hearing of the appeals, have been kept open on Excise permits !,le The Volunteers, The Bush (Landore). Tue *reenfields, The Brecon Arms. The Troubadour, \nd the Beaufort Arms. Those of the above 'hich belong to Messrs Hancock and Co. were, Consequent on the withdrawal of the appeals, Opened for the last time on Saturday night, and Unless the owners of the other houses decide to ♦Orsue the appeals independently notice of withdrawal will be given the police, and tbe JOII!!&! as licensed premises will cease to exist.
