A WARNING TO LODGING- HOUSE KEEPERS. A number of Towyn lodging-house keepers were at the Towyn Police Court last week charged with failing to register visitors under the Alien's Restriction Order, Defendants ad- mitted the offences and said that as the people who stayed with them were very weJI known to them they did not ask them to sign on their arrival. The Chief Constable (Mr Richard Jones), said the object of the proceed- ings was not to punish the defendants, but to warn the public that the Registration order must be carried out. He did not ask for a penalty, but wished all lodging-house keepers to take serious warning not to repeat their omission. Heavy penalties were pro- vided under the Act. In reply to a question by one of the defendants, the Chairman said it was their duty to do all possible to help the country, so that if they entertained sus- picions regarding any visitor they should report to the police. The cases were dismissed as a varning on payment of 4s. in respect of each defendant.
