CINEMAS AND CHILDREN. ABERDARE JUSTICES' ILLEGAL CONDITIONS. ——— In the King's Bench Divisional Court on Monday the Lord Chief Justice'and Justices Ridley and Avory heard an application on behalf of Alfred Pugli, for the owners of the Abereynon Work- men's Hall and Institute, for a rule nisi for a writ of mandamus and prohibition to be directed to the licensing justices at Aberdare with regard to conditions imposed on certain music and dancing licences. Mr. Randolph Glen (for the applicant) said the justices at Aberdare had heard 20 applications for these licences en bloc and imposed certain conditions. Appli- cant contended that it was ultra vires for the justices to impose these con- ditions. which were that "no child under 14 years ,of age be allowed in your premises during the performances after seven p.m. unless accompanied by a parent or guardian. No child under 14 years of age be allowed in your premises during performances after 9 p.m." Counsel said there were special cir- cumstances in his case which made it necessary that the justices should have considered it separately. He also con- tended that they were not entitled to impose the conditions, and asked the Court to prohibit them putting the con- ditions in force. The hall in question was quite different from others. It was a workmen's hall run in connection with an institute for workmen's families, and quite a different thing from a place run for profit. The Lord Chief Justice granted the rule for mandamus, and also for pro- hibition. (
