When application was made at the Magistrates' Court, on Thursday, for an extension of the hours to 1 a.m. For an Ilminster Police Ball at the George Hotel, the Chairman (Mr. L. HEPWORTH) commented. “There is sure to be an objection to this by the police.”

Supt. TRAVERS: There is, sir. I think 12 o'clock is late enough.

The Chairman said the licence would be granted until 12.30 a.m., and added, “We are not making an exception for the police. We often grant until 12.30. We don't love the police as much as all that.” (Laughter.)
