50 Appeal to quarter sessions.E+W

(1)A club may appeal to [F1the Crown Court] against any decision of a magistrates’ court refusing to issue or renew a registration certificate, or cancelling a registration certificate, or against any decision of a magistrates’ court as to the conditions of a registration certificate relating to sales of intoxicating liquor, or against any order of a magistrates’ court under section 47 of this Act.

(2)Where the decision appealed against relates to two or more premises, the appeal may be brought in respect of any of those premises without the others.

(3)Where the decision appealed against was given on an application to the magistrates’ court by the club, no person shall be made a party to the appeal except a person who appeared before the magistrates’ court to make an objection to or representations on the application, but any such person shall be a party to the appeal, whether or not his objection related to the same premises as the appeal.

(4)Where a magistrates’ court refuses an application for the renewal of a registration certificate, the court may, on such conditions as it thinks fit, order that the certificate (as in force at the time of the application) shall continue in force pending the determination of an appeal against the refusal, or pending the consideration of the question of bringing such an appeal.
