I LEDBURY LIBENSINC SESSION. I WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 11. I Before Alderman John Riley (in the chair), I Mr Spencer H Bickham, Mr R Buchanan, Dr I M A Wood, Mr Fred Ballard. SUPERINTENDENT'S REPORT. I The report of Supt J H Williams was as follows Gentlemen,—I have the honour to lay before you a list of public-houses, beer-house, etc., in this division. During the past year they have been regularly visited and generally well eon- ducted. I have had occasion to summon one license-holder for an offence against the tenure of his license, viz., Sidney Francis Allen, of the Talbot Inn, Ledbury, for refusing to admit the police to his licensed premises, for which he was lined 22 and costs. Fifteen persons (three of whom were residents and twelve non- residents) have been proceeded against during the year 1913 for drunkenness, an increase of one as compared with 1912: and a decrease ef eight as compared with 1911, thirteen being convicted as against eleven is 19121 There are no new applications to come before you. The Chairman said it seemed a very satisfac- tory report. The Bench then retired to consider the renewal of the licences, and on their return the Chairman said with regard to these licences, they had considered the question of renewal of licenses, and they had decided that the licenses of the Brook Inn, Bosbury Butcher's Arms,. Woolhope and Crown,.Colwall, required further consideration. For that purpose they objected to their renewal that day in order that objection notices might be served. With regard to the Royal Oak, Ledbury, he wished to point that the door leading from the Royal Hall to other licensed premises, which it was agreed with the magistrates should be kept closed, was not kept closed, and he wished to call the attention of the licensee to the fact that that particular door must be kept closed. He also wished to remark upon the method of keeping books of accounts for licensed premises. No doubt it was one of those things which happened to all traders,, but it was important that all traaers should keep good and correct aceounts and in a goed manner so that their accounts could be easily gone into. With regard to the rest of the licenges they would be granted. The magistrates were, how- ever, of opinion that the number of licensed houses in Ledbury Urban was still in excess of the reasonable requirements of the place.
