THE LICENSING ACT.
Arthur Henry Bullen, innkeeper, West Winch, was summoned for selling beer in an unsealed vessel to a child under 14 years of age. Mr. R.A. Wilkin appeared for the defence and pleaded not guilty. P.C. Walker stated that he was on duty at West Winch about 2.30 p.m. on Saturday 3rd August, when he saw a child carrying a basket which looked as if it might contain a bottle. The child went into the Cock inn and witness followed and found she had been served with a pint of beer in a screw-top bottle which was unsealed. He called the landlord’s attention to the fact, and he said: “Yes, I know I’m wrong, but they will keep coming''. Mr. Wilkin raised the defence of selling without guilty knowledge, and asked for leniency on account of the excellent character the defendant bore. Supt. Flint said he did not press the case. Defendant had good credentials. Fined £1/4/- inclusive.
