HC Deb 22 July 1864 vol 176 c1906

said, he would beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether he will next Session bring in a Bill making it compulsory on Magistrates who, sitting in Petty Sessions, refused an application for a "Gladstone" Wine Licence, to state the grounds of their refusal, so that their decision may be appealed from to the Quarter Sessions?


said, in reply, that the reasons were now stated for refusing such an application; and the only question was, whether an appeal should be granted on the occasion of a first application. He had communicated with his right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer upon the subject, and he thought it right that such an appeal should be allowed.
