LICENSING ACTS Definition & Legal Meaning

Definition & Citations:

This expression is applied by Ilallam (Const. Hist. c. 13) to acts of parliament for the restraint of printing, except by license. It may also be applied to any act of parliament passed for the purpose of requiring a license for doing any act whatever. But, generally, when we speak of the licensing acts, we mean the acts regu- lating the sale of intoxicating liquors. Moz- ley & Whitley.
