"Prosecutions of interest under the new Central Control Board Order were heard at the Birmingham Police Court this afternoon. The defendant in the first case was Thomas Freeth, of 28, Barton Street, who was summoned for unlawfully taking from the Barton's Arms, High Street. Aston, three half-pints of beer 8.40 p.m. on December 24th. It was mentioned by Mr. J. E. Hill, who prosecuted, that the Control Board had set up a series of stringent orders in regard to the supply of intoxicants for consumption off the premises. The closing time for off-licensed houses was 8.30 p.m. In this case the defendant went to the Barton's Arms before 8.30, but, said Mr. Hill, he must have tarried in the passage for at least ten minutes. The man then walked out with his jug of beer, and was met by Inspector Husband, who took him back to the Barton's Arms. The barman declared : "I served him some time ago. He must have stayed if he has only just gone out.' It was only a technical offence, said Mr. Hill, but these were abnormal times, and the Chief Constable had been particularly requested by the Home Office to see that the Order was strictly enforced. Defendant told the court he had the beer before 8.30. A friend of mine, he added, "wished me a Merry Christmas, and we stopped a minute or two talking." The Chairman [Mr. W. L. Powell] : The authorities are anxious that the law should be obeyed, and asked the magistrates to treat these cases seriously. A fine of 10s. was imposed. Emma Speake, 17, Parliament Street, Aston, and Edith Bethel, 15, Parliament Street, were the defendants in the second case. The former was summoned for treating Bethel, and the latter for consuming a quantity beer supplied by Speake. Mr. Hill again prosecuted, mentioning that Speake entered the Barton's Arms on December 18th, leaving the other woman outside. She came out with glass of beer, out of which she had had a sip, and handed it to Bethel, who drained the contents. The highway adjoining a licensed premises was deemed to be part of the premises for the purposes of the Order. Inspector Husband said when he spoke to Speake she declared : "I am very sorry; I never gave it a thought.' Bethel said, "I own I had a drink out of the glass; I held the child while she went in to get half a pint of beer." Replying to the Chairman, Mr. Hill said the maximum penalty was £100 and six months' imprisonment. The Chairman : This the first case of the kind? Mr. Hill : Yes. The Chairman : I hope this case will be a warning to the public generally. I suppose the defendants did not realise what they were doing at the time. A fine of 5s. will be imposed in each case."
