The principal meeting of the Pembrokeshire Licensing Committee was held at the Shire Hall, Haverfordwest, last week, when five licensed houses which had been referred for compensation came up for consideration. At the outset Mr F. S. Reed, solicitor, Pem- broke, introduced a deputation representing the Pembrokeshire Licensed Victualler's Association. Mr Reed said the deputation had come to ask the committee, in view of the provisions of the Finance Act, to forego the compensation levy this year. The Chairman (Sir Charles Philipps) asked Mr Reed if he could give the committee any idea of the extent of the increased license duties. Mr Reed replied that they were difficult to estimate, He knew of one house in Pembroke in which the spirit license had to be given up. The Chairman—You wish that we should not recommend a higher levy than half the maximum limit as last year ? Mr Reed—Yes. Several members of the deputation spoke. Mr L. H. Thomas, Haverfordwest, referred to the hardships on licensees who, having paid £2 last July, were now required to pay JE15 in September. The Chairman, in dismissing the deputation, said the committee fully sympathised with them in their position. Referring to the new license duties, the Chairman said they would mean a diminution of profit, and the committee would have to take that into consideration in awarding compensation. These owners who had their houses referred for compensation were in a very fortunate position, because probably many houses would have to be closed without receiving any compensation whatever. COMPENSATIONS AWARDED. In the case of the Mahters' Arms, Pembroke, Mr Martin Richards, Llanelly, appeared for the owners—Messrs. Buckley, Llanelly—and Mr F. S. Reed, Pembroke, for the tenant. The valua- tion as estimated by Mr John Francis, Carmar- then, was JE350, and the committee offered £200, which was accepted. For the Iry Bush, Pembroke-Dock, owned by Mr James Williams, Narberth, JE393 12s. 8d. was claimed, and the committee offered £225. Mr R. T. P. Williams, who appeared for the owner, did not definitely accept the committee's award, and applied for seven days in which to come to a final decision. The sum of JE150 was offered by the committee in respect of the New Inn, Steynton, owned by Mr Thomas Palmer and tenanted by Mr Weatherall. It was stated that the house con- tained only two rooms, and was Jet at £5 per year. Mr R. T. P. Williams, Haverfordwest, who appeared for the owner, was allowed seven days in which to consider the offer. In the case of the Maso?is' Arms, Hubberston, owned by Mr Stokes, St. Botolphs, the committee awarded £750, which was accepted, the original claim being JE780. The tenant, Mr Thomas Rees, is 90 years of age, and claims to be the oldest license holder on the St. Botolphs Estate. Of the sum awarded, JE80 is to go to the tenant. Mr R. T. P. Williams appeared tor the owner. The sum of JE250 8s. 9d. was claimed for the Xolton Hill, Nolton Haven, owned by Colonel Harries, Hilton, and let to Mr James, Spring .1' Gardens Brewery, Haverfordwest. The com- mittee's award of JE170 was accepted.
