No. 7 of 1962.
Between:


ANTIGUA CIRCUIT


EDMOND J. BLAIZE
(Snperintendent of P'oiice)
and


DICK BARZEY
Before:
The Honour Mr. Justice P. C. Lewis
,, ,, Mr. Justice E. L. St. Bernard.
L. H. LOCKHART for respondent
Legal Assistant (D. M. LAMBERT) for the appellant.

JUDGMENT
(September 10 and 11, 1962)


LEWIS, J., delivered the judgment of the
Magistrate of District A for that he on Febru-
ary 3, 1962, at Christian Street in the Parish of
Saint John in the Colony of Antigua, did have
on premises other than licensed premises ruin in
excess of 12 reputed pints, to wit 72 bottles
Doorlys and 42 pints Cookspur rum, which were
not accounted for by the production of a sale note,
contrary to s. 87 of the Licensing Act, 1879, as
amended by s. 9 of the Licensing Act (Amend-
ment) Ordinance, 19 7, No 7.
At the close of the case for the prosecution
the respondent's counsel stated that the facts of
the charge were admitted and that he did not
propose to lead any evidence. He however made
the following submissions : The defendant be-
ing a licensed person could not be properly
charged for an offence under s. 87 of the Licensing
Act (Amendment) Ordinance, 1947, as it now
stood as the Ordinance drew a clear distinction
between Licensed persons and unlicensed persons.
As an illustration attention was drawn to ss. 27A
and 27B (1) which draw these clear distinctions.
It was clear that s. 87 referred only to liquor in
the possession of unlicensed persons. Tins was
fully borne out by a glance at s. 88 which placed on
a licensed person the responsibility of not only
pointing out intoxicating liquor in his premises but
also in "his custody or possession which custody
or possession it does not require to be necessarily
on licensed premises. In fact the section is quite
*silent on this point, and there seems no reasonable
justification for importing into the section such a
restriction.
Section 89 is also illuminating on the point
because it creates an offence which deals with
excesses not properly accounted for by licensed
persons. It is therefore evident that licensed per-
sons have a duty imposed by s. 27A coupled with
a. 89 (1) which enjoins them to deal honestly with
stocks of liquor unhampered by the formalities of sale
notes ordinarily applicable to unlicensed persons."
The inmgistrate accepted the submissions of
counsel for the respondent and held that there was


Respondent.


no evidence that the respondent, being a licensed
person, had an excess of quantity of liquor in his
possession, and he accordingly dismissed the com-
plaint.
It was common ground that the respondent
held a tavern licence which authorised him to sell
on his premises between certain prescribed hours
"any intoxicating liquor, on which every duty
payable has been paid, to be consumed on the
premises."
lue appeliaui appealed l ,aAi: g' :;:l
that the decision was erroneous in point of law,
and at the hearing of the appeal sought and
obtained leave to add to his ground of appeal the
following words :
.... on the ground that there was found
on premises other than licensed premises (i.e.,
the premises of the respondent) rum in excess
of 12 reputed pints which was not accounted
for by a sale note, contrary to s. 87 of the
Licensing Act, 1879, as amended by s. 9 of
the Licensing Act (Amendment) Ordinance,
1947 ".
T*he same argument which was addressed to
the magistrate was submitted to this court, the
gist of which was that as the respondent was a
licensed person he committed no offence under
s. 87 by having rum in excess of 12 reputed pints
on unlicensed premises even though he could not
account for the same by the production of a sale
note. In other words what was being submitted
was that once a person held a licence under the
Act this enabled him to keep any quantity of
liquor on unlicensed premises. In support of his
argument counsel for the respondent referred to
ss. 27A, 27B (1), 87, 88 and 89 (1) of the Act.
Counsel for the appellant on the other hand
referred to the definition of licence" licensed
person ", premises ", licensed premises and
" unlicensed premises" in s. 3 ot the Act and
contended that s. 87 of the Act created two
offences, namely, (1) the posses-ion by an un-
licensed person of rum required to be accompanied
by a sale note and his inability to give a reasonable

explanation to account for the absence of the aaie
note, and (2) the presence on unlicensed premises
of rum required to be accompanied by a sale note
and the inability of the person or occupier of the
premises where such rum is found to give a reason-
able explanation to account for the presence of the
same by the production of a sale note. He accord-
ingly submitted that the respondent had been
guilty of the second offence created by s. 87.
In our view the submission of counsel for the
appellant is the correct one. We consider that s.
87 is intended to make it an offence for an3 person
other than a licensed person to have in his posses-
sion rum which is required to be accompanied by a
sale note unless he can give a reasonable expla-
nation to the magistrate for the absence of the sale
note when called upon to produce it; and a second
offence is also created where such rum is found on
unlicensed premises and no sale note is produced to
account therefore.
In this case it was admitted that rum in excess
of 12 reputed pints was found on the respondent's
premises, which were not licensed premises, and by
s. 27B (1) any rum in excess of this amount is
required to be accompanied by a sale note. It was
also admitted that the respondent did not produce
a sale note to account for his possession of the
same, nor did he give a reasonable explanation to
the magistrate to account for its absence. Accor-
dingly we are of the opinion that the respondent
was guilty of the second offence created by s. 87 of
the Act.
This is sufficient to dispose of the appeal but
out of deference to the arguments addressed to us
by coun,,. for the respondent on ss. 27A, 27B (1),
87, 88 and 89 (1) we will briefly examine these
sections.
Section 27A merely requires a licensed person
to keep a book in which shall be recorded all sales
of rum in excess of 12 reputed pints. Section
27B (I) prohibits the removal at any one time
from one place to another of rum exceeding in
volume 12 reputed pints unless accompanied by a
sale note. Counsel for the respondent submitted
that the words "rum which is required to be
accompanied by a sale note in s. S7 mean rum
purchased by an unlicensed person in excess of 12
reputed pints. There is in our opinion no warrant
for any such interpretation of these words.
The purpose of s. 27B (i) is plain. Its
object is to prohibit the removal from one place
to another of a specified quantity of rum except
under a certain condition. The quantity of rum
specified in the section is an amount exceeding in
volume twelve reputed pints" and the condition
under which such a quantity of rum may be
removed is that it should be "accompanied by a
sale note". The subsection in effect provides a
definition for the expression rum which is to be
accompanied by a sale note", and says that this
expression means any quantity of rum in excess of
12 reputed pints. It thus equates the expression
" rum required to be accompanied by a sale note "
to the expression rum exceeding in volume


twelve reputed pints ". Tl'e expre sion rum
required to be accompanied by a sale note is thus
a term of art in the Act, and wherever it is used
it signifies that reference is being undle to a quan-
tity of rum in excess of 12 reputed pints. This
expressionl is used in s. 27B (2) which makes it an
offence for a person to receive without a sale note
"any rum required to be accompanied by such sale
note."

Section 84 (1) created certain offences in
connection with the sending out, delivery and
removal of rum required to be accompanied by a
sale note ", s. 85 (2) makes it an offence for any
person to be found removing or carrying "any
rum which is by this Act required to do be accom-
panied by a sale note", if he refuses or fails to
produce the sale note when required to do so. In
all these cases, the expression rum required to be
accompanied by a sale note has the same mean-
ing, which is, rum exceeding in volume 12 reputed
pints.

As regards s. 89 (1) the words the examina-
tion under the provisions hereinbefore contained of
any licensed premises ", have no relation whatever
to s. 88, which in fact does not give a power of
examination to any one, but imposes on the
licensed person the duty of pointing out to the
persons mentioned in the section all intoxicating
liquor on the licensed premises or in the custody or
possession of the licensee, and if the licensee fails in
this duty he is guilty of an offence. The
" examination referred to in s, 89 (1) relates to
the power given in s. 4t to the persons named
herein t, inspect the records of licensed premises
" and to take an account of the quantity and
strength of all intoxicating liquor therein, and
generally to ascertain whether the terms of the
license issued under this Act are being complied
with, and whetl'er any of the provisions of this
Act are being contravened ". If oi, an exanina-
tion conducted under s. 4 the examiner finds what
apperirs to be nn excss in th- qua:itity of Hliuor the
licensee should h.ve in hand, then it is for the
licensee to account for the excess by the production
of sale notes, permits or otherwise, and if he can-
not satisfactorily account for the excess he will be
guilty of an oF-nce. In our view, therefore,
neither s. SS nor .. 89 (1) has any bearing on the
matters raised on Lhis appeal.

It seems to us, however, that s. 23 of the Act
completely demolishes the respondent's argument
that a licensed person may keep any quantity of
liquor on unlicensed premises. It will be observed
that this section makes it an offence for any person
merely to keep intoxicating liquor at any place
where he is not authorised by license to sell the
same ". Such a place" would of course be
unlicensed premises. It is also clear that the word
" person in this context includes a licensed person,
for the penal provisions of the section impose the
punishment of forfeiture of his license on the
holder of a license if he is convicted of a second or
subsequent offence under this section.







June 27,1963] THE ANTIGUA MONTSERRAT & VIRGIN ISLANDS GAZETTE.


An attempt was made -:o persuade the court
to remit the case to the magistrate to hear the
respondent's defence because the submissions made
on his behalf were made at the close of the case for
the prosecution. In our view, however, it was
clear from the record that the respondent having
admitted the facts of the case for the prosecution
intended to reply only on his legal submissions and
did not intend to call any evidence. In fact on the
record it is stated on behalf of the respondent that
'" it was not proposed to lead any evidence ". In
these circumstances it: woid not be proper t.' allow
the respondent a second opportunity of offering an
explanation to the inagis:rate to account ior the


absence o. the sale uote ,vhe:i by his own deliberate
act he omitted to do so in the first instance.

The order of the court is the appeal be allowed
and the case remitted to the magistrate to record a
conviction against the respondent and to impose
such sentence as he may deem appropriate. The
respondent should pay $20 costs.

Appeal allowed.
