Fines for drunkenness to increase

Hertfordshire Mercury, 5th June 1915


At Cheshunt Petty Sessions, William George Smee, of Turner’s Hill, Cheshunt, labourer, was charged with being drunk and disorderly and using obscene language at Cheshunt on May 24.  The prisoner pleaded guilty.  P.c. Foord proved the facts, and a fine of 13s. 6d., or 10 days, was imposed.  The Chairman pointed out that fines for getting drunk would be increased in the future.  In all courts around that district the magistrates were adopting that course, and he wished to give a warning that fines for drunkenness would be increased considerably.
