HC Deb 18 July 1872 vol 212 c1363

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether, under section 28 of the Government Licensing Bill, the disqualification of the premises therein mentioned is also intended to apply to the forfeiture of the license; and, if not, whether, in the event of the disqualification order being cancelled, the license will, ipso facto, be available for transfer, as if such disqualification had not occurred; and, if not, whether it be not reasonable that some remedy should be provided in the Bill?


, in reply, said, that in the event of any disqualification of premises, the owner would be in the same position as the owner of unlicensed premises. There being no license, it could not be transferred, but the owner might at the next Brewster Sessions make application for a new license, which would of course be granted or refused, according to the discretion of the Justices.
