BIRMINGHAM PUBLIC-HOUSE TO CLOSE
ORDER RECEIVED FROM CENTRAL CONTROL BOARD
An Order has been received in Birmingham from the Central Control Board (Liquor Traffic), closing The Board Public-house, 98 Bull-street, on and after 16 July.
This action has been taken, in the words of the Order, “in order that the sale and supply of intoxicating liquor may be controlled in the city area.”
This is the first step taken in Birmingham in this direction by the Central Control Board, and it may be mentioned that the justices had already reported this house for compensations, to be dealt with at a later period.
The licenser is Carl Oscar Ericsson.
