Description of this SeriesDescription of this Series
  • How to use the Records
    This series consists of miscellaneous records of the Licensing Court of Victoria (VA 2955). These records were originally transferred as unit 2 of VPRS 7605/P1.

    The Court, established by the Licensing Act 1916, consisted of three licensing magistrates, where formally this function had been administered by district magistrates and justices (VA 2869). The three magistrates were also the members of the Licences Reduction Board (VA 2906), while the Secretary and officers of the board also acted as the Registrar and officers of the Court.

    The Court provided a central administration for the granting and control of liquor licences in Victoria, in conjunction with local administration at the licensing district level by the Licensing Clerk of the nominated courts of Petty Sessions.

    This is a collection of mainly loose papers dating from 1917 to 1933 and incorporating:

    - memos from the Court to the Licensing Clerks
    - Victorian Government Gazette notices of licensing court dates and locations
    - schedules for annual sittings and related correspondence
    - typed lists of convictions under licensing laws.

    The papers are not in strict chronological order.
