WHEN DOES A MEAL END ? MORE LIQUOR CONTROL" FOOLISHNESS. When does a "meal" finish.'—when the food is eaten, or when the drink ordered with it is consumed? The point wa3 raised by Mr. Charke Hall at Oict-,st-, Police, Court on Wednesday during a oase under the Liquor Control Regulations. John Robert Bailey, the licensee of the Trafalgar Beer House, Remington-street, fihoreditch, was summoned for supplying intoxicating drink and allowing it to be con- sumed on his premises during prohibited hours, and Thomas Varney, a carman, was charged with consuming liquor during pro- hibited hours. Varney, it was stated, entered the Trafal- gar Beer House cn December 14 at 2.45. and was seen to pick up a glass of beer from the counter and drink the contents. Bailey wa-e in the bar at the time. Fo;' the defence it was stated that Varney and another man ordered bread, cheese, and a glass of beer at about 2.15. but were called a'-v ay by a telephone message. Varney left his beer but returned later a!,rI finished it. The Magistrates' Finding, Mr. Clarke Hall --aid he did not propose to determine whether bread and cheese was a "meal" within the meaning of the Act. The point to be decided was whsn a meal finished. Was it when the food ordered was consumed or when the druiK oiaered with it had been drunk? It was admitted that the plates on which the bread and cheese had been served Imd been removed, and that con- stituted the end of the "meal." If this were not so a man might order a racnl a i:, (I a bottle of whiskey and claim that ho had a risht to time to firish it after he had eater, hi.3 food. Defendants were ordered to pay the costs.
