Licensing Act 1872

Status:

This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

46Whereas in certain cases a license under the Wine and Beerhouse Acts, 1869 and 1870, is not to be granted unless the house and premises in respect of which such license is granted are of such rent and value or are rated to the poor rate on a rent or annual value of such amount as is respectively in that behalf stated in the Acts recited in the Wine and Beerhouse Act, 1869 ; and it is expedient to substitute in such cases

annual valuefor the said rent, value, or rating, and to provide for the ascertaining the annual value of such house and premises : Be it therefore enacted that in cases not provided for by the last preceding section—

A license under the Wine and Beerhouse Acts, 1869 and 1870, shall not be granted in respect of any premises which are not, in the opinion of the licensing justices who grant such license, of such annual value as is mentioned in that behalf in the Acts recited by the Wine and Beerhouse Act, 1869 ; and those Acts shall be construed as if " annual value" were therein substituted for

rent,"value," "rated on a rent or annual value," and other like expressions. If at the first general annual licensing meeting after the passing of this Act the licensing justices are of opinion that any premises which are licensed for the sale of intoxicating liquors at the passing of this Act are not of such annual value as authorises the grant of a license for such premises, they may, notwithstanding, renew such license upon the condition, to be expressed in the license, that the holder thereof, before the next general annual licensing meeting, improves the premises so as to make them of sufficient annual value, and if the holder fail to comply with such condition the license shall not be renewed at such next general annual licensing meeting.
