The Board sat the Beaufort Court House in November 1908:

BEAUFORT. LICENSES REDUCTION BOARD. Messrs Barr (chairman), Andrews, and Cumming (the Licenses Reduction Board), sat at the Beaufort Police Court on Saturday morning to deal with objections lodged by the licensee's of the All Nations and Farmers' Hotels; and to finally apportion the last license fee with respect to the George Hotel. This fee was £15, and the apportionment of its payment by the remaining hotels in Beaufort, as objected to, was as follows : —£4 10s each by the All Nations and Commercial licensees; £2 by the Farmers licensee; and £1 each by the Beaufort Golden Age, Railway, and Camp licensees. Mr S. Young, solicitor, who appeared on behalf of the objecting licensees, said the seven licensees had agreed to put the following scheme before the board as to the assessment of this last fee:—That the All Nations and Commercial Hotels pay £3 each, and the other five hotels £1 16s each. The board having finally ascertained that the licensees were all agreed on this scheme confirmed it.[1]
