49Where on the occasion of an application for a new license or transfer or renewal of a license which authorises the sale of any-intoxicating liquor for consumption on the premises, the applicant, at the time of his application, applies to the licensing justices to insert in his license a condition that he shall keep the premises in respect of which such license is or is to he granted closed during the whole of Sunday, the justices shall insert the said condition in such license. The holder of a license in which such condition is inserted (in this Act referred to as a six-day license) shall keep his premises closed during the whole of Sunday, and, the provisions of this Act with respect to the closing of licensed premises during certain hours on Sunday shall apply to the premises in respect of which a six-day license is granted as if the whole of Sunday were mentioned in those provisions instead of certain hours only. The holder of a six-day license may obtain from the Commissioners of Inland Revenue any license granted by such commissioners, which he is entitled to obtain in pursuance of such six-day license, upon payment of six seventh parts of the duty which would otherwise be payable by him for a similar license not limited to six days; and if he sell any intoxicating liquor on Sunday he shall be deemed to be selling intoxicating liquor without a license. The notice which a licensed person is required to keep painted or fixed on his premises shall, in the case of a license under this section, contain words indicating that such license is for six days only, In calculating the amount to he paid for a six-day license any fraction of a penny shall be disregarded.
