Provided that where the proprietor proposes himself to act as manager in the place of the person named as aforesaid, it shall be sufficient compliance with the provisions of this sub-paragraph if he notifies the Committee in writing that he proposes so to act and of the date on which he will begin to do so.

ARTICLE 8

GROUNDS FOR REFUSAL OF APPLICATION FOR REGISTRATION ETC

(1)           The Committee shall refuse an application for registration, or for the renewal of registration, in any case where –

(a)     the Committee is not satisfied that the applicant, or where the applicant is a body corporate any officer of the body corporate, or a person named as manager in such application, is, or satisfactory evidence is produced that he is not, a fit and proper person to be registered or, as the case may be, to be an officer of a body corporate registered, under this Law;  or

(b)     the applicant, or where the applicant is a body corporate any officer of the body corporate, or a person named as manager in such an application, has been convicted of an offence under this Law in respect of which a penalty is provided by paragraph (2) of Article 16 thereof, of any offence against public decency, of any offence involving fraud or dishonesty, or of an offence under any of the following enactments, that is to say –

(i)      Loi (1895) modifiant le droit criminel”;3

(ii)     Pharmacy, Poisons and Medicines (Jersey) Law, 1952;4

(iii)    Dangerous Drugs (Jersey) Law, 1954;5

(iv)    Drugs (Prevention of Misuse) (Jersey) Law, 1964;6 or

(c)     it appears to the Committee that the applicant –

(i)      not being a body corporate, is under the age of twenty years; or

(ii)     not being a body corporate, is not ordinarily resident in the Island; or

(iii)    being a body corporate, is not incorporated in the Island; or

(iv)    is a person, or where the applicant is a body corporate any officer of the body corporate is a person, or the person named as manager in the application is a person, disqualified under Article 9 of this Law, or under Article 18 of the Food and Drugs (Jersey) Law, 1966,7 during such time as the disqualification remains in force:

Provided that in a case where a person disqualified under the said Article 18 is so disqualified only in respect of specified premises, the provisions of this clause shall apply only in respect of those premises; or

(d)     the applicant, or where the applicant is a body corporate any officer of the body corporate, or the person named as manager in the application, has, within the twelve months immediately preceding the date of the application, been refused registration or the renewal of registration, under the provisions of sub-paragraph (a) or (b) of this paragraph; or

(e)     the Committee is satisfied that, if the application were to be granted, the registered premises would be carried on for the benefit of, or would be managed by, a person who would himself be refused registration under any of the foregoing provisions of this paragraph:

Provided that where an application for renewal of registration is made by the lawful guardian, not being himself a person who would be refused registration under the said provisions, of a minor child of a deceased proprietor for the purpose of carrying on the registered premises for the benefit of such minor child, the application shall not be refused by reason only that the registered premises would be carried on for the benefit of a person under twenty years of age or for the benefit of a person, if such be the case, who is not ordinarily resident in the Island; or

(f)      the report of an inspection under Article 5 of this Law shows that the premises in respect of which the application is made are unsuitable for registration or for the renewal of registration:

Provided that, in the case of a place of refreshment which is being carried on immediately before the coming into force of this Law, the Committee may grant an application for the registration of that place of refreshment, notwithstanding that it is so shown to be unsuitable, if the applicant satisfies the Committee that, during the time the registration remains in force without renewal, the works so shown to be necessary to make the place of refreshment suitable for registration will be undertaken and brought to completion to the satisfaction of the Committee; or

(g)     an application is made otherwise than in accordance with Article 4 of this Law.

(2)           The Committee may refuse an application for registration, or for the renewal of registration, in any case where –

(a)     during the time that the applicant, or in a case where the applicant is a body corporate any officer of the body corporate, was the proprietor or the manager of any registered premises, those registered premises were not properly conducted; or

(b)     it appears to the Committee that the registration, or the renewal of the registration, of the premises to which the application relates would –

(i)      injuriously affect the health or comfort of, or would seriously impair the amenities enjoyed by, persons residing in the neighbourhood of the premises; or

(ii)     result in undue congestion of traffic; or

(iii)    prejudice the preservation of law and order.

(3)           Where, under the provisions of this Article, the Committee has refused an application for registration, or for the renewal of registration, otherwise than on the grounds set out in sub-paragraph (f) of paragraph (1) of this Article, and the decision of the Committee refusing the application has not been appealed against under the provisions of Article 11 of this Law, or having been so appealed against, the appeal has been abandoned, or has failed for want of prosecution, or has not succeeded, the Committee shall not take into consideration any further application –

(a)     by whomsoever made, in respect of the premises the application for the registration, or for the renewal of the registration, of which was so refused;

(b)     made by the applicant whose application was refused as aforesaid, or to which, whether as an officer of a body corporate or otherwise, he is a party, or in which he is named as manager;

until the next following time for the making of application for the renewal of registration at the expiry thereof.

(1)           Subject to the provisions of this Law, the Committee may at any time cancel a registration on any ground on which registration might be refused.

(2)           The provisions of paragraph (3) of Article 8 of this Law shall apply where a registration is cancelled as they apply where an application for registration, or for renewal of registration, is refused.

(3)           Where, under Article 18 of the Food and Drugs (Jersey) Law, 1966,8 the court orders that a person be disqualified from using specified premises or, as the case may be, any premises as catering premises, the order of the court shall have effect, except in a case where the specified premises are not also registered premises, so as to cancel the registration.

(4)           Where, under Article 18 of the Food and Drugs (Jersey) Law, 1966,8 a person is disqualified, the Judicial Greffier shall, as soon as may be, deliver to the Committee a copy of the order of the Court disqualifying that person.

ARTICLE 10

(b)     attach to any registration a condition, other than a condition attaching to all registrations; or

(c)     cancel a registration under paragraph (1) of Article 9 of this Law;
