§ MR. R. POWER
asked Mr. Solicitor General for Ireland, Whether, under the Irish Licensing Act, magistrates have the power of refusing a transfer of licence where the parties decline taking a six days' licence, the magistrates having no other grounds for refusal?
§ THE SOLICITOR GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. PLUNKET)
Sir, it is under the Act of 1872, as applied to Ireland, that the licensing justices in Ireland have power to make a licence, a six days' licence, on the application of the persons seeking it. That Act does not make "declining to take a six days' licence" a ground for a refusal by the justices to grant a licence or the transfer of a licence.
