  2. (b).—[Mr. Vosper.]

Mr. Vosper

I beg to move, in page 55, line 39, at the end to insert: (4) Where during the transitional period a club remaining registered under the 1953 Act in respect of any premises applies for the issue of a registration certificate for those premises, section twenty-five of this Act shall not apply so as to authorise an inspection of the premises by a constable, if the club had for the three years preceding the appointed day been registered under the 1953 Act in respect of the premises. I have referred to this Amendment which deals with police inspection of established premises. My right hon. and learned Friend the Solicitor-General said that we would further consider the matter.

Amendment agreed to.

Further Amendments made: In page line 19, leave out paragraph (a).

In line 27, leave out from "renewals)" to "and" in line 30.

In line 42, leave out paragraph (d) and insert: (d) There shall be no appeal to quarter sessions against the grant of the licence.

In page 57, line 9, leave out from "if" to "sub-paragraph" in line 12 and insert: the required notice of the application is given to the clerk to the licensing justices while the club remains registered under the 1953 Act".

In line 18, at end insert: (3) Where on an application made in accordance with sub-paragraph (1) above a justices' on-licence is granted for premises in the Carlisle district, and till then the premises have at all times since the coming into operation of state management in the district been premises of a registered club, proviso (a) to subsection (1) of section seventy-seven of the 1953 Act (which, as amended by this Act, excepts from the control of the Secretary of State under that subsection premises which have been licensed premises at all such times and, as originally enacted, also excepted premises which have been the premises of a registered club at all such times), shall thereafter apply to the premises as if at all such times before the coming into force of the licence the premises had been licensed premises.—[Mr. Vosper.]
